Users(the equiv of /home basically) contain therein all Documents and
Settings. My idea would be to put settings in logically named hidden
files preceded by a '.' ;) The new windows method is as irksome and
confusing as the old method. Also FYI, there is no comparison between
ping /? and man ping. Man pages offer a completely different level of
insight into a command, and it is exponentially more efficient than any
windows method to date. Finally trying to run your computer without
documentation is like trying to run your car with an owners manual.
Ever try to find the fuel cutoff switch on a 1987 Ford EXP? Trust me,
it goes a lot faster with the manual and that's why such things are
standard--consumers expect it.
I'm looking for an OS with a sane file hierarchy and a shell I can use
to manage the files therein. An editor better than Notepad would be a
I see the sense in C:\Users
I see the sense in C:\Documents and Settings
I see the sense in C:\WINDOWS
I see the sense in using CMD.exe -- after all, the dos box has been around
Also please note I do firmly believe there is a place in this world for
windows. That some people would expect a single mother working as a
nurse to come home take care of the kids, and be able to make flash 9
work so she can partake in other common activities on the internet, or
resolve dependency issues(on the computer) seems more than a bit asinine
to me. However the place for windows is not on my desktop except for
work which mainly serves as a repository for putty sessions. Even that
limited use will hopefully come to an end soon.
