    is it possible to do on a mac?

    ok, a bit of back story

    The other day while I was around at a friends place, we where on his computer, and as I was watching him struggling to get vista to do what he wanted and wondering why he wouldn't just try mac like I have suggested so many times before, I actually did notice a little feature of vista that I liked, the icons of all his folders, showed in the icon, the contents of the folder, ie. he had a folder of some lolcats, and the folder icon was a a simple yellow folder, open with some of the actual images visibly sticking out of it, another folder which contained documents and images and more folders, was shown open with the actual images, docs and more folders visibly sticking out in the icon.
    I really liked that and I was wondering if anyone knows of a plugin or something that can do that on a mac, so can anyone help?

    p.s. I just found a picture example

    No. You can have individual filetypes show their contents though.

    You could. I just don't remember the name of the program. Try LeopardMOD or Candybar.
