comment Why is Linux's filesystem designed as a single directory tree?
@Christopher Creutzig - agreed, symbolic link not necessary for my example, I just wanted to throw in another example of how a flexible naming schema can work for you. It's perhaps not the very best example.

comment Why is Linux's filesystem designed as a single directory tree?
@RBerteig - maybe tradition, especially in the Windows case, but Rob Pike presents a fairly convincing argument for Unix-style naming schemes in The Hideous Name, pdos.csail.mit.edu/~rsc/pike85hideous.pdf

comment Can a file be retrieved by its inode?
@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams - do you know of any OS that allows file retrieval by anything other than a file name? Most filesystems have something like an inode (ODS-2's "file header" for example), but I don't know that anything allows retrieval by inode-analog-number.
