I was at Mactivity, too, and talked to the "corporate naming weenie" at Apple who came up with "Apple Internet Mail Server."
First, without naming names, I've known this guy for about five years - he isn't a weenie. Second, he apologized for the name. Just a few days before the product announcement, Apple lawyers told him that MailShare had trademark problems, and they didn't have time to make an extensive search for any creative names. What could they approve? Anything generic, that started with the word Apple. So, we got Apple Internet Mail Server. Blame the lawyers. At least it's descriptive.
Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher
If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.
