I'm curious how other people have configured their Finder. Here's mine (default view). Another view with some folders open. I find that Columns view is the only usable one for me - it's very easy to navigate using the arrow keys. Icons view requires too many double clicks (or double key presses) to open folders. Cover Flow works for some folders, but not for all. List view doesn't seem bad, but I've never given it a chance. One thing I really miss is the ability to 'duplicate' a Finder window (opening a new one opens my default folder, not the current one) or open folders in a new Finder window.
