UPDATE: If you have feedback and comments on the OS, Apple will accept them here http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html/ (and hopefully not circle file them).
I have said this once before already, but I am not feeling the stack love in leopard. The premise is to make folders in the dock open up “stacks” of pretty icons for easy access. The problems are (let me enumerate):
- Custom icons of folders are lost.
- If you have more than a few items (depending upon screen size) you get a large, square grid instead of the “tower” and
- If you have subfolders you cannot dig down through them via the Dock.

What makes this particularly heinous (and I mean that in the best possible sense, it is truly evil) is that Stacks have taken away functionality that I already had! And in return I get…nothing. Pretty, large icons, but those are not needed.
I am really, really hoping and praying in that fervent manner of fevered desert pole-sitters that Apple will allow us to turn this off in a future update. Or at least allow us to dig down into subfolders.
