Default Re: Hiding files

It is (and was first) a Unix thing and has become a Posix thing. But like the original BlackBerry hidden files it doesn't really hide anything from software or people who know how to get around it.

So it comes back to why you want to hide the files. If it is to declutter a listing that's fine. If it is to hide something from kids, co-workers or spouses, you need to hope they haven't read Posix for Dummies.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
