Oddly, I'm half listening to Fresh Air on a local NPR station, where atOr, if some parts simply misuse the English language.
There's nothing "wrong" here, other than MS's inability to read, write,
and understand English. LOL And it's not the first time MS has played
fast and loose with the English language, if memory serves.
If you check out Wikipedia, "A library (from French "librairie"; Latin
"liber" = book) is an organized collection of information resources made
accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing." Notice
the word organized. If you take X numbers of folders with disorganized
data, you just end up with all the disorganized data in one location
instead of X locations.
As Char noted, some people like the way they work. But, I wonder, if a
survey could be taken, would the organized users of hard drives be
equally enthused, especially if they have spent a lot of time in real
libraries growing up, and understand the card file/Dewey decimal system.
I expected better. And I often expect better of OS X, too.
Guess you could say, I'm an equal opportunity "expecter". LOL
And to continue to play with words, there's the old saying, "If you
expect to rate, don't expectorate." <grin>
this moment they're talking about saliva. Uncanny...
Later in the show, the teaser indicates that the interviewee will be
talking about her colonoscopy. I'm glad your remarks didn't foreshadow
Aside from bad word play (it takes one to know one, of course), it's
pretty clear that what doesn't work for me does work for Char. It's hard
to argue with that (well, no, it's easy to argue, but not a good idea!).
