Looks to me like... The wasted color space makes use of different colors; I think they're trying to help people narrow things down based on remembering a color.
"I can't find my document."
"What did the folder look like that it was in?"
"Well, it was green."
"Ok, it was in a dynamic folder; let me help you find it.."

See?

Wasted space for a power user, yes. Wasted space for newbs; nah. Besides, too much functionality on a newbs screen seems to confuse them ;) .

Good point.

However, hopefully they give us a way to take out the extra crap like that. I don't want to feel like I'm a kid playing with a fisher-price toy when I'm running a search on my HD for that mpg of the guy who crapped himself trying to light his farts..
