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 have a valid point but you have to see how other people use their computers, I have seen many people place important files directly in the Root of the file System, whether is Windows C or Mac's HD. Although others have point out something valid and is that it shouldn't be hardcoded. Yes I know it's only ICloud but the article spawned a interesting debate by calling it Anti-n Directory Structure Movement. I firmly believe that when Apple finalize the iOS Mac OS merging there will be some kind restriction maybe not to the iPhone iPad point but still some limitation in folder creation, maybe at the end we will have only smart folders temporary folders with no depth.
