My only experience with Macs dates back to MacOS 7.x, but I seem to
remember it was there too. I remeber it as being convenient. I withhold
judgement about which is more confusing, list view or tree applet. What
I like about a tree applet is that it separates the the metaphors more
cleanly IMHO. A list view that is just an indented tree is again a
browser, and I see not much difference between a list view and a side
pane with a tree as it is now.
