I agree with your thoughts about Microsoft's folder naming and multi-user interface. I always set mine up for one user. And I blame Apple for the cutesy names for folders. They want to hide the real interface from users.

Honestly, it's sad. It seems that a very significant proportion of end users are unable to navigate the basic operating system file system. Rather, I think, they're just too lazy to learn.

But when I was providing telephone software support on a relatively complex enterprise product, I found that a significant number of people were basically incapable of following the instruction:

"Using Notepad or similar, open the file C:\foobar\foobar.cfg"

And a lot of these folks were working in I.T. departments. Seriously!

I hate it when vendors like Apple or MS dumb down their products to serve the moronic but I also have some sympathy for the challenges they face in the marketplace.
