I wouldn't call "the finder" the most basic part of the OS...

To a developer maybe not but to the average consumer the os is the layer where their files and software are, both of which are displayed through the desktop and the "finder" windows. They don't care and almost allways don't know about the drivers or kernel.

I'd argue that many (perhaps, most) people use the browser more often than the file browser to access content they're interested in. Orders of magnitude more, I'd think.

I don't think this app is competing against Finder as much as it is with Chrome/Firefox/Safari.

It's not like there is a shortage of file management programs out there. They're basically creating one more, and layering on a bunch of hype about how they're doing something revolutionary
