Dieter Rams' "Ten Principles of Good Design"

Good design is...
1. Innovative.
2. Makes a Product Useful.
3. Aesthetic.
4. Makes A Product Understandable.
5. Unobtrusive.
6. Honest.
7. Long-lasting.
8. Thorough Down to the Last Detail.
9. Environmentally Friendly.
10. As Little Design as Possible: Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.

“File system as two words refers to the layout of your directories, which includes things like the /dev directory that represent different hardware devices and don't actually refer to files on your disk drive. And "filesystem" refers to the software that manages the files and directories.”
