Wow! Yeah, if you have some replacement Finders, it could possibly save me countless hours of reading Inside Macintosh (although I might do it anyway hehe). Even if they don't run in OS9 they could still provide some great insights. That would be amazing. Thanks so much!!
Scraped Google for Unfinder. Can't find it on the info-mac forums. There's one link to an old ftp site with "Unfinder.sit.bin" but it's a dead link now.
But I did find some other minifinders and made some notes:Nofinder
- Works in OS9. It acts as a normal Finder when it's a finder in the system folder though. Even uses the OS6 font set. Very interesting.FaberFinder
on Gryphel site:http://www.gryphel.com/c/sw/sysutils/fa ... index.html
- Looks like it still runs on OS9. Doesn't launch applications when acting as a Finder.
Found some more finders on this page:http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/bootdisks.htmlMinisubstitute 1.7.1
- Works in OS9, works as hoped when replacing finder, opens applications, shut down works properly. The GUI is very minimal, no popup windows. There is a bit of a lag after startup, and isn't scriptable. But might be one of the best so far.Shortfinder 1.5b2
- Fully functions in OS9. Unfortunately, it also acts as a normal Finder when in the System Folder. Not scriptable.Substitute 1.6
- Works in OS9, doesn't act like a normal finder when installed as a finder (which is good). But it has a popup dialog box with their 'about' info that cannot be closed, and shut down does not function, since it forces the user to "close all applications" - and of course there are applications in OS9 that run in the background.
Still very interested in any other finder replacements anyone can find!!
