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 find libraries quite useful, because I actually understand how something works without throwing a hissy fit everytime something changes.

I understand how they work also as I am sure many other OSNews users do; regardless, they are more of a hindrance than a help. To echo others: they add an additional unnecessary layer of abstraction to the process of finding and accessing a file.
