Just for my curiosity and knowledge, from a Software or Hardware stand point prospective,

Using Terminal, I discovered once in a while, files that are named for example com.apple.finder or com.apple.dock etc.

What does it mean? Why they are named com.apple.*


It's called ‘reverse domain name notation’ and is widely used for naming packages/etc.

The suggested convention for generating unique package names is merely a way to piggyback a package naming convention on top of an existing, widely known unique name registry instead of having to create a separate registry for package names.
