I'm not often driven to fits of rage over tech, but the last time I used an Apple was one of them.

I'd like the OS designers over there to give me a good reason why they have their filesystem divided into "forks" and application files are distributed across different "forks" so you cannot find all the application files in one place.

The fact that Apple would fork their filesystem such that every application has additional files on a different "resource" fork has got to be grounds for a severe beating at least.

What is the possible upside of doing it this way?

I want to be a fly on the wall in their design meetings. I bet they spend more time talking about what color of brushed aluminum their products should be than they do about stuff like the above.
