Grouping was created for people who aren't organized. For those of us who are
organized this makes it harder to find files and slows us down. For every
one of you who claim it to be the most useful feature there are 10 like
myself hate it. I can scan a list of files for what I want faster than I can
sort though which friggin group it's in.. For those of you who ask why I
destest it - Obviously you didn't read my post where I state clearly that it
hampers my efficency and lowers my productivity. I can find the file I need
MUCH quicker in an list of details than with this grouped view with all those
headers and excessive white space. Grouping breaks up the list and in
folders with few files in it there tends to be more text for groups and white
space displayed than is used for the files themselves..
The main problem with it is that it won't stay turned off.. Linux may not
be the solution indeed but Apple could very well be and this ill-conceived
feature that's been imposed upon everyone with an off switch that was made in
China or India is on the top of a list of 18 reasons I've complied (to date)
to scrap the windows platform and switch to a Mac.
Like I said.. Vista is ME - Marketing Edition (squared).. This is the O/S
that Microsoft Marketing always wanted.. It's not my imagination that
millions worldwide are avoiding it due to it's repuation for poor
performance, unpredictable behavior, lower productivity, annoying
features/functionality, and contains nothing compelling enough to invest the
very significant resources into switching. It's a stop-gap product that's as
big of a mistake as the original ME.
Vista lowers productivity, and does not increase it as the massive marketing
machine likes to claim. There are good reasons that people are avoiding it
and this is one of them.
