Hi BearBottoms,
I didn't mention it before, so I do so now at the risk of stirring up the
same daemons that plague us when I mentioned no spaces in the names. (The
minute I propose a directory with no spaces, I get accused of trying to go
back to the good old days.)

I NEVER have a category that has a space in it, so, suggestions like "File
Management" would have to be compressed, somehow, e.g., to "filemanagers",
and "Hard Drive" would be compressed, to, say, "hardrive".

In addition, I strive (but not always successfully) to keep the file names
to 8 characters because Windows XP still has a horrible time with long file
names when you're typing commands or modifying registry entries or writing
batch scripts. Sure, I can search for "~1", "~2", "~3", etc. and I can
constantly put quotes around everything I type at the Start command line
and in the Windows Registry keys ... but it's a royal pain that Windows XP
doesn't handle spaces well.

Does anyone know if Windows Vista finally overcomes the Windows XP
stupidity when it comes to handling long file names and spaces?
