I note that on MacOS X applications are directories.
For example, 'Squeak 3.6.1Beta5.app' is a directory containing about
two dozen files (most in subdirectories). From the command line, I
can detect this.
But from the GUI, what you *see* is one thing; double click on it to
look inside and you start the application. Even in a file list, it
shows up as an "Application", not a "Folder".
Even something like the standard 'TextEdit' utility turns out to be
a directory containing a little over a thousand files in subdirectories.
Why should I, as a Mac user, know or care about this?
Answer: as a Mac user, I DON'T know and I DON'T care.
