在Ars Technica，John Siracusa写道Mac OS X Finder令人遗憾的状态It’s long and deep, and effectively covers two topics: 1) a descriptive, balanced, and fair look at what is wrong with the Finder; 2) a proposed design for how Apple could fix it.
Several of the ideas in his proposed design do not appeal to me; nonetheless, it’s without question a better design than the existing Mac OS X Finder它再次表明，Mac OS X Finder的批评者只是吵着要求Finder采取行动，行为与Mac OS 9 Finder完全相同。
另一方面，他对当前OS X Finder的错误分析是准确的例如。：
Some would say that the Spatial Finder is unnecessarily limiting, and that it leads to a “messy” desktop full of windows that have to be managed manuallySteve Jobs himself has made this claim, condemning interfaces that ask the user to be “the janitor.” It would be better, the argument goes, if the computer could be “the janitor”, avoiding the chaos of multiple windows by divorcing the spatial properties of any given window from the hierarchy of the file systemIn such an interface, a file’s position in the hierarchy can be expressed as a simple “file path” in a single window, rather than by the relationships between a series of individual windows.
虽然它可能会冒犯先生Jobs’s aesthetic sensibilities, the simple fact is that humans are much more adept at dealing with visual/spatial clutter than mental clutterBy compromising the user’s ability to manage files and folders based on familiar spatial cues and behaviors, all the complexity of the file system hierarchy is simply moved from the screen into the user’s mind.
回到11月和12月，我写了几篇批评OS X Finder的文章：
我可能收到了更多的电子邮件，以回应这些文章，而不是我在万博manbetx贴吧写的任何其他内容虽然绝大部分电子邮件都非常有利，但是有大量邮件来自不同意的人但是每一个对当前OS X Finder表达满意的人都有一个共同点：他们都是计算机迷。
OS X Finder依赖的浏览器比喻要求您了解并了解卷的层次结构您可以打开两个查看相同文件的窗口，这要求您了解如何同时在两个位置查看同一个文件，而不是两个单独的文件That’s great for some people; it’s not so great for many others.
