For many dialog boxes you can select the option you want by pressing ⌘+firstletter where firstletter is the first letter of the option you want to select
If you can stretch your budget, get OmniGraffle for Mac. At $100, it's pricier than you'd like (do you possibly qualify for the $60 edu price?), but it's exactly what you're looking for. On the lower end there's Mindcad Incubator for $50, but I haven't tried it myself and I'm not sure it does everything you want.
There is a feature that's currently experimental called HiDPI that may do what you want. Like the retina displays on the iPhone and iPad, HiDPI mode creates a "logical" resolution that's half the current resolution on your display but uses all the physical pixels to keep the image sharp. This results in all the user interface elements appearing much larger, ...
The Google Docs suite of tools now has a diagramming tool that lets you create flowcharts. While not as feature rich as something like OmniGraffle, it does cover all your requirements: simple & clean interface, basic shapes (and not an overabundance of shapes), automatic connectors with elasticity, and it meets your price point at free. Certainly can't ...
This seems to be exactly what you are looking for: LaunchControl
I found another one. Seems to meet all your prerequisites. Shapes Shapes is a simple, elegant Graphing and Diagramming app for Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Shapes gives you all of the most important features you need in a Diagramming tool without all the extra cruft, and without breaking the bank.
Looks like it's available in MacPorts, so you could install MacPorts and then install Nautilus using that: sudo port install nautilus You should then be able to run it using the nautilus terminal command.
Uncheck the box: I found it unnatural, too, since they flipped it. I think they're going for consistency between iPads and mice.
[EDIT] When I originally wrote this answer, there was another answer and a few comments that dealt with the issue of running Nautilus instead of the Finder: in other words, how to prevent the Finder from running at all. Given that context, my answer as written in its original form clarified and/or provided an alternate method. It appears that the original ...
The "clear" key is used to clear simultaneously the contents of all selected cells in Microsoft Excel. This allows the user to clear more than one cell at a time, which is what the "delete" key is limited to. This function of the "clear" key is essential for work with spreadsheets.
In general, its function is to clear the selection, much like pressing Delete or Forward Delete, but unlike with the Delete keys, it will not do anything without something already selected. Luckily, in the Finder, it selects the last item alphabetically, rather than "clearing" selected files and folders, which could be bad. It functions as a normal Num Lock ...
Dia is pretty useful. From the description: "Dia is a program to draw structured diagrams". Available for Linux, Windows, OS X.
Check out cocoaDialog: cocoaDialog is an OS X application that allows the use of common GUI controls such as file selectors, text input, progress bars, yes/no confirmations and more with a command-line application. It requires no knowledge of Cocoa, and is ideal for use in shell and Perl scripts (or Ruby, or Python, or... etc). It's a pretty simple ...
When you are using Windows and you open an application like MS Word or Adobe Photoshop, it will open up the application window with some sort of empty background. When you do this on a Mac however, there is no background, there is simply the menu options in the very top bar. So say you had a file open in Photoshop in Windows and you closed that file, you ...
It stands for "EtherNet" as far as I know.
Hold down the option key when you click on the WiFi menu. Then next to the currently active network there will be a "Disconnect from" option. I'm on Yosemite, and so I'm not sure whether this was present on earlier versions of OS X.
The standard shortcut for "Don't Save" in the dialog you mention is command ⌘+Delete. The old shortcut, command ⌘+D, can be restored by issuing the following command in Terminal: defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSSavePanelStandardDesktopShortcutOnly -bool YES and to revert back, defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSSavePanelStandardDesktopShortcutOnly -bool NO ...
It's not the default behavior for tab–I read because someone at Apple felt tabbing "wasn't magical enough"–but in the Keyboard preferences, click the Shortcuts tab. Then select All controls to make the Tab key behave the way you want. Or just press control+F7 to toggle this. If you are at the following dialog, just hit d...no key-combo necessary.
For free online diagramming there's draw.io. THe U/I is simple and clean. It support the automatic connection and dragging of components you're looking for. Also, it's free, which meets your under $30 requirement.
In System Preferences, there is a setting for overall "Appearance." It would appear that your appearance has been set to "Graphite" instead of the default "blue." While the maximize and minimize buttons are not blue, when the appearance is set to blue, they are in color; when the appearance is set to graphite, they are grey.
To elaborate on the answers above, many (most?) dialogue boxes will have the default option in blue. Hitting ⇥ will cycle between options, with a blue outline around the other button, but the default will remain blue. Hitting ↩ will always select the default, space will select whichever button is highlighted. In this example, pressing ...
Yes - you can simply log in to a console on OS X. Set log in preferences to show username and password field. Enter >console as the user and press return.
Better yet, open a terminal and type: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool YES (enter the admin password). Log out and back in, and Bob's yer uncle.
I do not know how do delay the triggering, but you can add modifier keys to the hot corners in order to avoid accidental activation: Hold down ⌘,⌥,⇧ or ctrl while selecting an option from the list.

I've had the same struggle with keyboard shortcuts to the menu bar (tried many different combinations). the only one that has consistently worked is the help shortcut ⇧ ⌘ ? (shift+command+/) from the help menu just use the arrows to navigate to file/edit/view…
Neither MacOSX nor iOS offer to change the OS theme. If you want to do this, you need to use third party software. What MacOSX does offer, is changing the color profile and calibrate it in System Preferences -> Displays -> Color -> Calibrate. I've played around with different options and found the option "Cool bluish white" to be much easier on the eye:
Turn on voice over in accessibility and when you click it it will speak what it is called. It's called "hide keyboard" using voiceover, but it could be called something different within apple, because what voiceover reads could be a label set just for voiceover.
