Spatial file managers ...

I used to use the spatial Finder on an SE/30, which had a resolution of 512x384 and it was okay for most tasks. So I don't think that resolution is the issue. I think the real issue is the number of files that we have on our computers and the number of folders that we arrange them into.

I agree that things get crowded quickly. Even on my 1280x1024 monitor. So I tend to settle for the browser mode. But I positively loved the spatial mode when things were more simple.

Honestly, I think the clutter is mostly imagined. I'd rather have a "cluttered" desktop than a cluttered mind.

I find that middle clicking and using shallow directories tends to eliminate a lot of the unneeded clutter.

Ctrl-l also helps immensely, if you know where you're headed.
