Global Folder View Setting

Is there a way to have all folders open in the same view (i.e. tile) all the time? Seems like on new installs half the time I spend changing the view to tile every time I open the folder for the first time.

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
