Am I the only person here who HATES...in fact, DETESTS...the @#$! column view? Because I have some Panther-hostile software, I haven't updated to X.3 yet, but I've got more than enough reason to upgrade: in Panther, I can get the list view in dialogs, so that I can be rid of the column view ENTIRELY!

The OS-X file system has so many almost-but-not-quite identical branches in the file tree (how many 'bin' directories are there, anyway?) that the column view is darned near useless because there's no way to tell which branch you're looking at. Column view is OK when you're drilling down from the top, but, as in a dialog box, when you're dumped into the middle of the tree someplace, it's horrible.
