I am Jack’s music directory.

I applaud this move:

Microsoft Longhorn Loses ‘My’ Prefix
Ending a longstanding tradition, Microsoft Corp. plans to stop using the word “my” as the default prefix for such folders as “My Documents,” “My Music,” “My Pictures” and others along those lines. Starting in the next Windows version, due out next year, folders will be known simply as “Documents,” “Music,” and so on.

This is long overdue. I personally cannot stand the cutesy and childish “My” prefix and usually make an active attempt to eliminate it from my Windows installation. Unfortunately, after I rename the music folder to “Audio”, various programs will decide they need to put something in “My Music” and create that folder again.
So thank you Microsoft for getting rid of that Fisher-Price shit. If I wanted my operating system to condescend to me, I’d have bought a Mac.
[Joking! Don’t hurt me, Mac users!]

    First of all, I agree. I remember I used to change “My Computer” to “Mr Computer”. Subtle, yet highly satisfying.
    *Insert obligatory OS X support here*. Of course, the chumps who used Macs before Apple released a real operating system will need to defend themselves.

    Ahem. I do prefer OS X greatly to the previous versions, but there’s a lot to be said for personal preference. No other defense is necessary. I’m not trying to convince anybody else of anything.
    As to not hurting Travis, you’re bigger than I am, so there’s no need to worry.
