Linux The true reason for this article is to point out some sensitive points and to start a discussion. Hopefully, this discussion will produce some useful outcome and if some people in the Linux community are willing to listen to them, I would already be very enthusiastic. Let's start, shall we?

3. Not really some of us do use Connect To Server by default, and for my surprise browse never found anything. Network shows only partial network resources (SMB and iTunes). And Open Location can do everything that Connect to server can. Read manual.

Yes, but for less knowledgeable users, it makes sense to differentiate between connecting to an FTP folder and a local one. Think beyond yourself.

4. Not hidden, completely different

The normal unix FS structure is hidden in Finder. That is done to make it more userfriendly. As I said, KDE and Gnome do the same. The real FS structure is visible in the Terminal only for power users.

5. Often

Any actual cases and reproduceable scenarios, please.

6. In every finder window there is a quickfind which by default contains "everywhere". I already got fed up of users that think that this is sherlock.

Not here. Input fields are all empty.

7. One location would be acceptable, but so many, c'mon

Doesn't change my point.

8. Depends on server settings. As I heard. But it is a major mistake

Works fine, always. Never had problems.

9. OSX Printing To PDF is not adequate for DTP.

How many end users do true DTP?

10. Mostly

You're doing odd things with your Mac.

11. WHen you start app, icon jumps, but many operations are silent, do not show progress, and do not show any action.

Can you give any examples instead of saying vague stuff like 'many operations'? Bouncing dock icon instead of the sand-cursor.

12. So you don't use no Adobe software, no TextEdit...

What? Please, please, try to make sense.

13. Look carefully

Still the same answer.

14. Yeah right, TextEdit and Addressbook. Textedit has dialog, while AddressBokk is different. Look at preferences etc, not just open/save for button layout

What?

Seriously, you need to learn to give examples and describe in more detail, because now, you're just making stuff up.
