    Hey, that actually makes sense. Good job, Jasyn, I think you nailed it.

    Yet, I missed it. I understand the concept of spatial finder, but even in Metal mode, I double click the hard drive, it opens a window and I double click it again - it simply activates that window - it doesn't open a second one.

    hahaha that's really cool. I just presumed that the pill button would cause a toolbar thing to drop down like it usually does, but it just magically transformed into aqua!.

    i think i'm starting to understand it now...

    although i think that most people aren't worried with the brushed metal look of the Finder... just that it seems really 'clunky'. the windows are really big, the icons seem to be more spaced out than in Jaguar, and there are those top and bottom borders that look out of place.

    oh well, i guess people will just continue to debate...:p
