Re: How to translate this ?



Yea, I love these comments, and "merely to add to the confusion" :D I'd like 
to mention that my favourite German translation is "Objektträger," which 
literally means "carrier for an object" - because the hard drive ("object") 
is carried within the file system by this "mount point." "Objektträger" is 
also the usual German term for the small glass that fixes/carries the object 
under a microscope.
