    I'm sure if Jobs was here, he'd fire the guy/girl who made this mistake.

    This is from 10.7.4

    The Finder version number has nothing to do with the version number of OS X.

    Finder is just an app. I recall that in Snow Leopard 10.6.6 the Finder is 10.6.7.

    Actually, it's not true that the Finder version number will always be the same as the Mac OS X version number.

    The Finder and Mac OS X version numbers aren't always the same.

    But it IS true that for any given Mac OS X version, the version of the Finder will be a particular version number (but not necessarily the SAME number).

    So when you upgrade to Mac OS X 10.7.3, the Finder was 10.7.3 because a Finder update was part of of the 10.7.3 update. And sometimes the Finder version get's ahead of the Mac OS X version.

    But apparently there were no Finder updates in Mac OS X 10.7.4, so the Finder version remained at 10.7.3.
