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?

You are telling me that if I upgrade to Mountain, I will not be able to have folders inside folders!?

Please tell me I got this article wrong.

Yes, you did read it wrong (although I think Thom's summary doesn't help). Only when saving documents in iCloud are you restricted to one-level folder hierarchies. When saving documents on your Mac, everything works as it did before.
