Faxing?
Posted by: Anonymous on May 23, 2001 09:05AM
What about faxing from the desktop? That's something many people can't live without!

Spring Loaded Columns
Posted by: Jeff Binder on May 24, 2001 10:01PM
Spring loaded folders make so much sense with the column view, it's a wonder that they weren't included. I'm more productive with the column view than I ever was before, and I'd be even more productive if the columns were spring loaded (or at least had rubber bands on them).

iSub|Epson|Zyxel-Drivers and DVD Playback
Posted by: Anonymous on May 29, 2001 01:26PM
What I'm missing are the springloaded folders, drivers for my iSub, my Zyxel omni.net USB, my Epson Photo 1290. And I want to watch DVDs on my iMac. Also the MacOS X Finder is damn slow, so Apple geniuses, please make it all that happen in the next big release!! MacOS X 10.1 I'm coming!!!

Features or Fixes
Posted by: Anonymous on May 31, 2001 08:30AM
Rather than add features, how about making my iSub work and letting me hear the modem?

POWER MANAGEMENT
Posted by: Anonymous on Jun 09, 2001 04:51PM
Howabout better power management? If I boot my new iBook in 9.1, I can get about 5.5 hours of battery life. If I boot in X, that drops to about 2.5, three if I'm lucky...

The thing I need most right now is better support of USB devices, USB printer sharing, fix list view, and get the UI off thorazine!

Give us spring-loaded folders!!
Posted by: Anonymous on Jan 21, 2002 02:41PM
That spring-loaded folders is not supported by Mac OS X is unbelievable! In my opinion, that was the greatest single advantage the Mac OS had over Windows.
