And MS stole it from Apple, who probably stole it from somewhere else
(I'm not sure if the concept of spatial views was in the Xerox PARC
GUI's where Apple got a lot of their early ideas for their interface).

Google for 'nautilus spatial' for plenty of background discussion and
holy wars if that sort of thing interests you.

I simply turn that option off and it doesn't bother me on the rare
occasions when I use a graphical file manager.  AFAIAC, GUI file
managers suck compared to shell commands and scripts. :-)

(BTW, I like how you used "Win 3.x" and "worked" in the same sentence.
Good one! :)
