What idiot did that?
The M$ world has taught virtually everyone that spaces in filenames are no
problem. Each M$ user has these "folders":

My Documents
My Music
My Pictures


The perversity in Redmond knows no bounds ... :-(


Not to mention the horror of insisting on using the "wrong" slash as
folder separator.

Yes, a hold-over of backwards compatibility with
that toy operating system, CP/M.

[And yes, CP/M WAS a toy. It was written by one
guy in his basement in the mid-1970's to use on
his Altair (*?) Intel 8080 machine, which he
distributed freely to hobbyists. Then it was given
commercial legitimacy first by Radio Shack (TRS-80),
and then MS (Gates bought a slightly extended
commercial version and re-branded it PC-DOS].
