...any ...x - linux and unix have a fight with any win / ms... or vice versa. More the latter, because the
x-thinking was before the win / ms thinking:
Unfortunately, win has multiple homes, so it does not really know where home is... it is different for different file types (or content types)... a simplification and one less path switch for win users, but a total loss - not win - for everything else in win.
(last but not least, this is historically, because win came out of a single user, stand alone system... where as linux / unix was built multi-user from the beginning... and not only that, multi-user, multi access level (user, group, world). Win has somehow caught up with that during its life time.
Bringing both in sync and hide the differences where they do not - and more so - should really matter - aka Espruino - is not a simple task... Especially in the browser, that should not expose anything about the underlaying world.
