@nev on the one hand i'm horrified, but on the other, i think this is hardly new. 90s kids will remember the horror of trying to help an older relative with a computer task and seeing a desktop congested with hundreds of disorganized files. i am not one to tell someone how to use their computer, but the understanding gap for me is like... even if you can search for things, the idea of putting different things in different buckets is still useful
A cozy little tomb full of friendly ghouls.
