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?

With Linux/Unix and DOS, the organization makes sense

And yet not a long time ago there was an article documenting how little sense it has, lots of weird historical baggage... http://www.osnews.com/story/25556/Understanding_the_bin_sbin_usr_bi...
(and of course religious war in the comments)
