Mac OS X Even though Snow Leopard is supposed to be all about tweaking and performance, AppleInsider claims to have some information regarding new features coming in Snow Leopard. They claim Apple is working on bringing Exchange support to iCal, Address Book, and Mail, a feature called ImageBoot, and - insert drum roll - a new Finder written in Cocoa. Testers also claim that other bundled applications are written in Cocoa. This isn't all that weird seeing Carbon doesn't come in a 64bit flavour.

I've read whole articles dedicated to how bad Finder is, but I just don't see it. Sure, I prefer Thunar to anything else, but to me, a file manager needs to (A) remember my last-used view mode, and (B) provide instant access to my most-used folders. Anything else, Terminal is one click away.

Would you really want something as complicated as Midnight Commander just to open a Word doc? If I need to view two folders, I open a second window. If I need to view three folders...I can do that too! What do you MC buffs do?
