Leopard Improves Renaming

Little things can make a big difference. Now in Leopard, when you rename a file (usually I do this by pressing the enter key), Leopard selects for you the file name without the extension, while it used to select the whole file name. This makes a lot of sense since in 99% of the cases you just want to change the part of the name that is before the extension. This is the type of simple changes that enhances your productivity and that I love to see in new version of an OS.

I am curious, is Vista now doing the same? Update Nov 20, 2007: Olivier left a comment below to say that this is implemented similarly on Vista.
