Windows Ah yes, Windows Explorer. One of the oldest parts of Windows, and yet, it's far from perfect. It's hated less than, say, the Finder (but that's no achievement), but most geeks I know aren't particularly fond of it either. For Windows 8, Microsoft is going to make the biggest change ever to Explorer's interface: it's getting the ribbon treatment.

What don't you like about the Finder? Maybe it's cause I do everything via keyboard but I've never had an issue with it. Just curious.

No option for folders first, no cut (it's always grayed out, WTF??!), nu UP button, weird keyboard shortcuts (Enter to rename a file - I don't care if it's some kind of Mac OS tradition, it's stupid), no right click to create a new file, no easy option to show hidden files, crappy ZIP handling, no "Send to" context menu (dragging sucks, is messy, tiresome and not especially fast), can't be removed (or moved) from the Dock (because Apple knows best or some nonsense like that).

That's why I use a combination of TotalFinder and ForkLift.
