Yeah, I think Win32 should've dropped support for the old MSDOS device
names. Or at least only interpreted a filename as a device name only if
there's a trailing colon.
NTFS seems pretty cool, actually... when is NetBSD gonna get Unicode
filenames? :) While I do all my computing in English, I have friends and
relatives that like to use their native language for filenames.
http://www.azeotrope.org/~khym/langs.png is a screenshot of a US English
WinNT 4.0 Explorer window with filenames in 5 different languages,
including 3 non-Latin scripts and 2 double-byte ones.
