Dear Apple

Dear Apple, I know y'all have a reputation as the gods of interface design, and I'm willing to forgive you the abomination that is Mail.app simply because it gives me so many laughs and snickers when people talk about the Macintosh aesthetic and how superior your designers are and why OS/X is better than Ubuntu, but let's talk for a moment about iChat: What doofus decided that "Send File..." should sit under the "Buddies" menu?

There's a menu item?

Heck, just dragging a file onto someone in your buddies window (or the Bonjour window) works fine.

Aaaah. I loathe the finder, so I'm rarely ever navigating the filesystem by draggable objects.

you can also drag the proxy icons from document windows, images from a browser, URLs...

Someday someone's going to build a shell and terminal in which the output from "ls" etcetera results in draggable objects.

Until that time I'll be selecting "attach" from menu options.
