I have been using Ubuntu as my primary operating system since early 2005 - my prior OS of choice being Debian. I greatly enjoy the Community that has grown around Ubuntu and the standards it's upholding. I'm also now an employee of Canonical working on the Juju project.

comment Finder Replacements?
Flawed design in my opinion: You can hold folder meta data in a database or flat text private directory in the home folder. Keeping it in place with real data to me is flawed.

comment Finder Replacements?
It's wasteful in the directory - because it shows up in compression of the folder. Not everyone in the world uses a Mac - so filling user directories with system settings to me seems wrong

comment Never create a .DS_Store file again
@boehj File spam to be honest, and the idea that the best solution fo storing meta data about a directory was a hidden file in each directory.

comment Never create a .DS_Store file again
They're in my zips, and I manage a lot of hidden files. I'm more concerned with the fact that it holds its meta data along side my data. Seems like a fatal design flaw.

Somehow I doubt that will carry much weight. Thanks for your answer though
