File System Learning - 2 Cents

CNN.com Steve Jobs File System Article

I remember being sad when I first read this. Reminded of it today. Loss of knowledge about file systems, when people didn't even understand them in the first place, is a bad thing. Steve Jobs is exactly right that the learning curve is vertical when it comes to learning file systems. Doesn't mean we should give up on learning them. We should make them more intuitive. Using iTunes as an example of an app that controls the file structure for you is a terrible example! There is no more difficult system to learn than that useless organization system.

I suggest reading the comments on the article. At least one mentions iTunes, too.

But a learning curve that's slow would be horizontal, not vertical. Under international treaties we're bound to recognize the X-axis as the Time axis. Learning would be the Y axis.

Apparently...
 
I've got a horizontal line to represent my learning curve of the learning curve.
