I've got my Tiger ordered through Amazon (with a mail in rebate!) but
probably wont install it for several months and/or until 10.4.1 comes out.

>From what I see though it looks like the toolbar is gone from Finder Windows
(is that true?) and you've GOT to use the sidebar now. I've got a small
screen and windows with sidebars take up too much space. I've always liked
the toolbar which I use in small text only mode. Sigh... looks like not
everything is an advance for me.

Good Luck,
