James, just amazing to me that you are writing an article about MacOSX and, seemingly, are not aware of something as basic as the "preferences" setting in the Finder that allows you to change the "focus", as you call it, of a new Finder window. Just as amazing is that it makes your list of the 10 (no, 11) things that make Panther worth the $129. Excuse me, but that is a bit lame. I would say that the improved organization of the Finder windows and the Open/Save dialog boxes are a big deal that is worth mentioning - not something that was there all along since 10.0.4 (maybe earlier, that's just when I started using OSX)

    Sure, you can open existing Finder windows open to the Home directory, but I think that moving things to the sidebar and letting you see more roots than just the home folder is a big deal. If I'm lame for that, then so be it. :)

    And yes, the fact that Open/Save has 'em is the coolest part of it.
