Ok, a super petty bitch about Mac’s OS X: Why on earth would you build in FTP functionality to the Finder, but leave it half-assed, enabling you to mount an FTP server in read mode only, so you can download, but not upload? How much harder would that extra functionality really have been? Yeah, yeah, I can use a third party client or the command-line terminal; it’s not that it’s so inconvenient, it’s just weird. Internet Explorer for Windows has been usable as an FTP client for quite a while; is there some logic to the crippled Finder FTP that I’m missing?
