I browse to a file in OS X and try to open it. The app respond "the file could not be found".
I can copy it in the Finder though.
It's all of a piece with the long decline of OS X. As I wrote in 2007regressed to the metadata standards of DOS 2.1. Anyone else notice that shortcuts to files stored on OS X servers no longer work? They used to mount the share and open the file, now you have to mount the server yourself.
Snow Leopard is supposed to be a cleaner, better version of OS X -- but it's had a typically rocky start. Apple's core OS is still in decline.
In retrospect, OS X went to the dark side after Tevanian left.
It's depressing - I don't see any light at the end of this tunnel.
Update 10/10/09: I ask on Apple Discussions for a stress test of OS X networking. Did 10.6 fix anything?
Update 10/10/09b: There's a report that this DOES work in 10.6. I'd given up hope. Now I don't need to think about Windows 7.
