A filesystem where each directory can have only one subdirectory.
@alexbuzzbee i just got off my facebook feed and this is *still* the worst thing i can recall reading on social media all day
Is it FHS complience sir ?
@epsi I hope not.
@alexbuzzbee better, *exactly* one subdirectory, like you have to have one. You get an infite chain of subdirectories.
@alexbuzzbee That was the implementation in MS-DOS v1, AIUI.
I have not read the (now MIT licensed) source to confirm this relic of information, though; I can’t say from direct experience. My first OS was MS-DOS 2.11.
@SuperFloppies DOS 1 had only one directory, the root.
@alexbuzzbee I totally misread the OP, and blame my embarrassing response on the fact that I had not yet had ☕️. 😀
Seriously somehow read it as “filesystem with only one directory.”
Remember, kids, toot only when awake! 🤦🏻♂️
@alexbuzzbee A 2D filesystem. There would always be two directions you could go. Like a timeline.
@utf8equalsX That would be 1D though.
@alexbuzzbee Oh. Right.
@alexbuzzbee that would be a mess.
