10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window
Authored by: tempel on Mar 07, '08 08:12:23AM
A suggestion.

Instead of this: sudo cp /Users/username/Desktop/default_smart.plist default_smart.plist
The article should suggest this: sudo cp ~/Desktop/default_smart.plist default_smart.plist

Those who are "dumb" users not to know what even a prompt is, this will be less of a problem to them. Those who know better can figure out how to set this for other users as well. No explanation necessary.

I was a Sr. Consulting Engineer with Apple for three years in Education Development, during which time I was afforded the opportunity to meet a number of these 'dumb' users to whom you refer. Many of these people were PhD's who were at the forefront of their fields (and were able to articulate their thoughts in grammatically correct English). I would love to meet you. I can only presume you rank in the stratosphere of the world's intellectual elite.

First, I am not a native english speaker, meaning I am not so good in my choice of words.

Second, I put the word dumb in quotes on purpose. Doesn't that have any meaning in the english language?
