Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

For me it is a thing of percieved security and therefore usability. I know there are other ways to hide something. But my perception is that i have an integral part of the filesystem which is not easily accessible to me. Since almost anything is about files, this irks me in a way which is equal to its integration in the lowest layers of NTFS.

Now playing: It's just an Illusion...

You have a very good point that I think I understand now. Would it be good enough to have a list of alternate data streams in the file-properties within the explorer right-click menu?

Yeah, that would be good. Why, does it exist? Did i oversee it at work? (Not that i'd use it in private anyways)
