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?

Show me the science. Parroting the party line is fun and all, but I want the science. Without it, this is all hot air.


A worthy call, Thom. But let's recall that your own article starts with "I have honestly never seen a single person have any issues with directories, nested or no, and as old as the concept might be, the people I interact with seem to be able to handle it just fine."

You've been to university, you know that the plural of "anecdote" is not "data", so for you to suddenly demand "science" after basing your entire argument on your own perceptions is really way out of line.
