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?

"I have honestly never seen a single person have any issues with directories, nested or no,"

Personally I have seen plenty and I have torn my hair out on many occasions trying to get people to understand where their stuff is. The fault is not theirs, the technology needs to be upgraded. It's irritating for you, and me, that stuff is designed for the majority and that this makes the life of the minority more complex or difficult but that is the right way round surely.
