Sorting differences between Files and Finder [CLOSED]

Post by darek » Tue Dec 29, 2015 1:30 pm

I just discovered something horrible. At first I thought that Files sort files in different order than Finder does, which would be a weird inconsistency. But then I realized that Files actually does a reasonable job there. It's Finder who's completely bonkers. Just look at the pictures. Do you know if it's normal? Or is that something on my side only?

Finder behaves similarly on my system :?
I hardly can imagine what sorting algorithm was used there, seems that Finder handles underscore character in some special way:

BTW sorting algorithm in Files is pretty straightforward and result is same as "ls" output:

Code: Select all

MacBook-Pro:!!!!!!!! migun$ ls -l
total 0
