And how is the sidebar any different from the icon bar that is already existant in 10.2 ? Drag any folder into the iconbar, and voila you have a new 'root' as you call it...

    No, not a new root. In 10.2 the toolbar gave you a place to click and drill fast to a part of the tree. As demoed by Steve at WWDC (the video of which is available here--go to 10:50 in the stream), having it on the side means that when you click on a sidebar item, it's the root of a "virtual tree". Plus, you can put more stuff over there, have it show up in Open and Save dialogs, and more.

    Watch the video and get a feel for it and how it works. It's better than the toolbar. :)

    Because the top of the sidebar depicts your (removable) media and the icons scale to fit so you can put a lot more aliasses in it
