    Why apple removing cover flow?, iTunes 11 got rid of it, iOS 7 got rid of it, Mavericks safari/6.1.1, its still in finder though, Im just hoping Mac OS 10.10/11 won't get rid of it :(.

    I recall noticing it at first, I had forgotten all about it till you mentioned it.

    I don't think too many people are using it, so I'm not surprised.

    It's a neat looking feature, but it was one I rarely ever used.

    It's pretty but it's most likely rarely used by most. Other than maybe in itunes.

    I guess I was in the minority because I not only used it, I liked it.

    I don't think that many people did. I played around with it a bit when it first came out and then never used it again. And I don't know of anyone else who uses it either.

    for sifting through <50 or so files, it can be nice/useful. For sifting through >1000s of files, it is a huge waste of time. Besides, with quick look, it is so much better to just quickly find your file via the list view, where you can actually organize by preference, and then simply 3 finger tap (on a trackpad) to quick view, giving you a much bigger window to see the file anyway.

    I much prefer the replacement for cover flow in iOS 7. You can look through many more albums at once.

    It's not really that practical... I've never used it much.

    In finder you can see the big icons and sort by date/name etc

    It was that kind of feature that looks nice and you like at first, but then you find it to be completely unproductive. However, I have to say that I don't like the replacements introduced in iTunes 11 and iOS 7 neither (both will be crap until they get some sort of alphabet list on the side/bottom).
