Anyone know why we can't have a progress bar here?

I'm no UI Developer, but that seems like a simple but essential feature to me...

    Depends on the file operation.
    If you call a library which does not return status information, it is hard to implement.

    On the other hand, it might be bad design to not say which operation is in progress, but that is context dependent, too.

    @sbiewald I'm copying files to an external drive, and status info is returned... I just have to have the file manager open to see it for some reason...

    @jayMcD You are right, that IS bad design.

    That's in the notification area, right? Some desktop systems are pretty picky about their notifications. They might not be ABLE to. However, it is bad design at face value.
