John Gruber has been writing a lot about the Mac OS X Finder over at Daring Fireball lately. I haven’t been a full time Mac user in several years, and after reading his posts, I’m less enthusiastic than I was before about someday going back. More importantly, I’m less enthusiastic about buying my wife a Mac sometime soon. She loves the Mac, and hates using my desktop PC at home that runs Windows. I’m not sure how much happier she’d be with the Mac OS X, either, though. When she had her own Mac, she had all of her folders organized just so, as did most of the Mac users that I knew. The fact that Mac OS X no longer persists the size, shape, and internal organization of your folders destroys the thing that she likes best about the Mac, if I had to guess.
