If you put the pieces together, it's quite obvious that Apple will finally be remaking the Finder for Leopard. And with any luck, actually revolutionizing it. The Finder is a Carbon application! Some of you know what this means. With the transition to Intel being prepared for the release of 10.5, it's obvious Apple will be rebuilding (to Cocoa) any lagging Carbon apps for Leopard; finally. And we know Apple would never do something huge like rebuilding the Finder without also taking the opportunity to redesign and innovate it. Expect a "real" "brand new" Finder for 10.5. And not anything like the "brand new finder" we supposedly got with the Panther release. This will be real! I can't wait to open folders with thousands thumbnails without a spinning beach ball, I can't wait to drag and drop hundreds of files without lag, and I can't wait to smoothly scroll through huge lists of file. My prediction for the new Finder: real preformance at last.
