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 the user you replied too was kidding ;-)
(Who would search for data about his data, encoded in binary information...LOL)

Regarding your tune files unaccessible, this is not a problem as long as you don't want to copy them, back them up or move them to a different drive. You'll argue that you shouldn't copy copyrighted material, but this is neither the real life, nor what the users want. They don't want to lose functionality.

I'm playing a little devils advocate, I don't actually believe what I'm arguing...

But Apple has purposefully always made it difficult to copy music files from devices.
