10.3: Pile document icons in one location
Authored by: Hedderik on Nov 03, '03 06:52:09PM

Well, there are also users who actually like the fact that one can "group" icons by clustering them together. I've got a "pile of current paper" documents, a "pile of experimental data" documents, a pile of "PDFs still to read", etc.

So, it's definitely not a bug for me...

10.3: Pile document icons in one location

Yes, but the key factor in "piling" items on a 2-D desktop is that they don't overlap exactly, thus giving you some visual feedback about the size of the pile. If I understand this discussion correctly, in Panther the items are directly on top of each other, so only the top one can be seen. I would not consider that a valuable feature.
