Tiger's System/Finder

ThinkSecret brings us another instance of their Tiger reports. This time about the Finder and System changes, which aren't so many (yet), as testers of the WWDC build have confirmed.

Coverage of Tiger has slowed to a crawl throughout the rumours and news pages, mostly because the single build that's come out of Apple does not yet contain the juicy changes we're all waiting for (aka the 'lickable' menu bar). Spotlight is certainly the most important change so far, but this will change your life only if you start to actually use Tiger as primary system, which not many testers have done yet, as our reports show. This will probably happen with the next few builds. And then, more and more 'spicy' information will become available.
