    I used to like the stacks feature in Leopard until I got too many files and when i clicked the stack all the files appeared in a big block, now i just put my files on the desktop.
    Does anyone else with a Mac that has stacks not use them?

    Have you tried right (or control) clicking the stack and changing the display type?

    Lists. Easy and simple. Stacks are hard to use and only show a fraction of available files (my downloads folder contains about 150 files, and new ones get added daily)

    Stacks got shut off the day I booted up leopard (after the update to 10.5.1)

    Take a look at HierarchicalDock too. It has some pretty useful features for stack icons.

    Yes!!!!

    I use an applications stack in list view which is simply amazing. I basically made an application folder with all subfolders of topics (accessories, office, media, system utilities, etc) that all my applications fall into. Then I made aliases of all the applications into their respective subfolders. Now when i hit the application folder it acts like a windows start menu (but much better organized) for access to all my applications that are not in the dock without the mess of the real applications folder.

    Too much to navigate something like that. Quicksilver FTW.
