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 agree about W7 libraries. It sounded nice when I first read about them, but now that I have them forced on me, I think they are incredibly confusing.

The problem is the way they mix the physical layout of files on disk with a misguided abstraction of a parallel hierarchical view which is meant to help you, but totally fails.
