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 think thats why i never ever would by an Apple product. Used to have a imac G3 but i switched back to a pc.
Of course one can see it as a an innovation of sorts but i always hoped that one day there would be a filesystem that can handle tons of files in a folder.
To make a folderless approach is bold, but i assume that most users will not even care or know.
Glad i don't use any of these devices and just have a pc.
