    I have done the update and there is now a little blue light under the open apps in the dock which is pretty cool. But is finder supposed to always be open?

    It has always been like that - previously it was I think a little triangle…

    And yes, Finder is always "on". :)

    Yes. Finder is always running and always has been in OS X. It also displays the files on your desktop and does a number of other things.
