Say wathever you want but HFS+ is the best filesystem EVER. Period.
- "Paths" are an incredibly STUPID concept, and the HFS+ "CNIDs" way of dealing with files is infinetely BETTER.
- File extensions is an incredibly ANNOYING and CRUDE way to discern a type of file (and lack the notion of file creator), the TYPE & CREATORs codes of HFS is infinitely better approach.
- Resource forks were BRILLIANT, and were a much better (clean) and efficient way to package data and code together than the "bundle" folders of OS X (that are still better than nothing as in Unix and Win)
The problem with OS X is that other filesystems are way INFERIOR and Apple had to compromise in the 'connected' era. So some of the best and unique features of HFS+ are not anymore used as they could.
I wish M$ copied better many years ago. Using files in no-compromise Mac Classic was way better than today in OS X. We went back 20 years to be able to connect with other OSs.
