OSNews, Generic OSes The article I'm about to link to, by Oliver Reichenstein, is pretty terrible, but it's a good way for me to bring up something I've been meaning to talk about. First, the article: "Apple has been working on its file system and with iOS it had almost killed the concept of folders - before reintroducing them with a peculiar restriction: only one level! With Mountain Lion it brings its one folder level logic to OSX. What could be the reason for such a restrictive measure?" So, where does this crusade against directory structures (not file systems, as the article aggravatingly keeps stating) come from?

Welcome back to the early 1980s. Over-simplifying to the point of the exact opposite of progress... Apple. Introducing the all-new shiny flat file system. Think Different.

Or should I say, Think Antiquated.

It seems that Apple just wants to make their users even dumber (as if they haven't made them braindead fucking retarded enough by now anyway) to further restrict what they can do on their systems, locking them down even further. Apple in 2012... who else would to go to such extremes? The GNOME guys are still trying to play catch up, because so far no one has mastered the art of dumbing shit down as well as Apple. They always reach new lows in regression, both technically and by design, that I would never imagine were possible. And for that, I sure as hell won't commend them.
