True, but that's an education issue not a technical issue. It's very difficult to overcome a dumb user's ideas without whipping them with a centronics cable

What I hate about Windows is the access based enumeration not enumerating the full path to something you have access to.

For example you have access to

\\fileserver\shared\private
And \\fileserver\shared\private\topsecret\dontcomehere \spydocuments\*.*

But you don't have access to topsecret, dontcomehere..

Novell would be intelligent enough to not show you the contents of "topsecret" except for "dontcomehere" - so you could navigate to your destination.

With Windows ABE...you just don't see anything and need to know the destination!

It is a problem mostly when implementing Windows based file sharing solutions for clients who have a really weird file structure and just want you to copy things and make them work "like they did on Novell!" with minimal involvement on their side.
