Mac OS X Ten years ago, to the day. March 24, 2001, the first official released version of Mac OS X went on sale, for USD 129. It was a massive step up and a massive step down from MacOS 9 at the same time - technically way more advanced, but clearly still in its infancy and pretty much unusable. Kernel panics, crashes, incredibly slow, and lacking many key features. It was so bad, in fact, that Mac OS X 10.1 was released as a free upgrade. Of course, we geeks know that Mac OS X is technically a lot older, but alas, let's just celebrate these 10 years. Maybe Lion will finally bring a usable non-crashing Finder!

Of course it does ;) . I'm not saying the Finder sucks for everyone - I'm just saying that it's probably the most hated piece of Mac OS X, and if you dive into Google even for 5 minutes, you'll see countless well-argued pieces as to why the finder sucks.


What I want to know is, does it suck as bad as Windows Explorer does? Explorer seems to somehow get worse with every new Windows release; MS seems more concerned with adding eye candy to it rather than useful functionality such as tabs and wildcard filtering. A 3rd party file manager is almost required on Windows, except that most companies won't allow employees to install one ;)
