For once I'm going to be anti-Apple. I really dislike the whole  
concept of drawers. They had a certain "wow" power in the beginning;  
but, now I think they are a real pain in the derriere. Probably one  
of those "sight" issues, but I'd love to go back to windows with  
frames that can be moved around by grabbing the frame and dragging  
it. Is there something in the HIG that says we "must" use drawers? It  
used to be that we had a system that let us do our work and didn't  
get in the way. We were in control. Not so any more. It's not Rev's  
fault. It's Apple and M$'s race to always try something "different  
and supposedly better".

NOT IMHO; it's a fact! Boy did I get up on the wrong side of the  
computer this morning!!!
