Here’s a test. If you have a PC computer handy open up a computer file, let’s say it’s a Word file. Now save the file to your desktop. While the file is open, try to move it to a new location –like the ‘My Documents’ folder. It won’t let you, right? Okay, so close out of the document and then move it to the new location. Now go to your ‘recently opened documents (under the ‘File’ menu) and try to open the file you just moved. It won’t let you right?
Okay, now try either of those things with a Mac running OS X. No problem. So how is it that the company with only 3% of the marketshare, whose speciality is primarily hardware, is able to accomplish this? I don’t know, but I know I prefer the way that Apple’s operating system keeps track of files that have been moved. I sure as hell don’t want to do it.
