Well, I'm a a very old Mac traditionalist and, in general, hate the sidebar and toolbar. I also have my Finder prefs set so that double-clicking a folder opens the folder in a new window. Oh, yeah, I have most windows set up to use Icon View too! :-)

Quite frankly I have just made ~/Library/ visible so things behave more like they did before Lion using

chflags nohidden ~/Library

as described by M. Tamer Özsu. Then it just shows up in the HOME folder.

Good Luck,
