Mac OS X Informit.com's very own Mac Reference Guide, Owen Linzmayer, again risks the slings and arrows of Apple's most ardent admirers with another look at how Tiger rubs him wrong. Take a look at "Ten More Things I Hate About Mac OS X" to see if you recognize any of your own pet peeves. Elsewhere on the same site, this chapter covers the initial installation and setup of Mac OS X Tiger, either as a fresh installation, or as an upgrade from a previous version. Detailed instructions are given to help you set your Mac up just how you want it.

One thing that he didn't mention was the lack of an "address bar" in Finder. In Windows I'll frequently type in the location of the folder I want to go to instead of navigating to it.

In the Finder, clicking on the "Go > Go to Folder..." menu or (easier) pressing shift-command-g will make a sheet with an address bar drop down from the title bar of your active window (or will show a dialog if there are no open windows).
It supports tab completion too. For instance, type "/u" followed by TAB to have it automatically fill in /Users/ - basically the same as tab completion on the terminal. "~/" will take you to your home folder directly (or just press shift-command-h)

shift-command-g also works in file open/save dialogs btw.
