Show hidden files in OSX

I hate not being able to see my hidden files in Finder. Why it hasn’t got a selector I don’t know. Still working on moving it to Linux Mint 🙂

I’m running OSX 10.6.8 (not Lion yet).

Anyway enter the line below into Terminal:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

Then hit ALT-right-click on Finder logo in the bar and select Relaunch. Job done.
