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?

4. I can't accidentally delete a drawer.

Bullshit. Just start throwing folders and documents in the trash without giving it much thought. You can nearly empty the drawer in no time, no doubt having the potential of throwing out some things you didn't mean to. And you have until the garbage men come to get it out of the recycle bin/trash/whatever. Drink some booze and you'll be even more likely to f--k up and not even realize it. It's not really any different from a person dealing with a computer file system who actually understands the concepts... f--kups happen, whether real or virtual.

I was going to respond with an argument about differing definitions of "accidentally", but I can't... I'm laughing too hard at the mental image of me drunkenly destroying my desk. Thanks for that ;)

When you're done with the desk, can you come do my office?
