@miar some buckets, like iPhoto, are really file based systems hidden behind a UI, with a database of metadata. Best of both worlds... The biggest problem with file systems is folder hierarchies, which are hard to remember or visualise.
@miar ah, but you’re a geek! :-P The app-specific sandboxing is a problem that needs to be resolved, I agree. Hierarchical based file systems are a usability nightmare though. Metadata-driven buckets (like photos & music on iOS) work much better.
@miar there’s lots of iOS that’s a huge improvement on desktop interfaces (no file system, no having to remember to close programs, no cluttered Start menu), but also lots that takes a while to discover and learn too (like the web being called Safari)...
@miar yep, it’s easy to forget how it takes a while to get used to interfaces, especially big leaps like touch screens vs mouse & keyboard. I’m hopeless on Windows nowadays and have never used Android either.
