Link: The Case Against Everything Buckets

I know there are some who love software like Yojimbo, Yep, and other organizers – but I’ve never understood why they don’t just use the standard filebrowser. Alex Payne pretty much nails why I feel this way.

One of my Rules For Computing Happiness is: “do not use software that does many things poorly.” Everything Buckets violate this rule up, down, and sideways. They’re poor filesystems, poor text editors, poor databases, poor to-do lists, poor calendars, poor address books, poor bookmark managers, and poor password managers. At their worst, they’re even poor web browsers, poor encryption systems, and poor synchronization schemes.
