I am on Mavericks (1.9.2) and I just noticed a folder called
Applications in my home folder, i.e. I have a folder
/Users/me/Applications. This folder is empty:
cd Applications pwd /Users/me/Applications ls -a ./ ../ .localized cat .localized [nothing] cd ls -lh drwx------ 3 me staff 102B 19 Apr 21:08 Applications/
I was wondering how did this folder came into being... this is admittedly a purely academic curiosity before I get rid of it.
