What's up with "My Documents?" - When Microsoft started supporting computers running on networks, they realized that more than one person would be using a computer so "My" became relative to who the current user of the computer is. Accordingly, to dumb-down the operating system to be more like Apple's, Microsoft came up with a dumb solution. In Windows 2000 and beyond, "My Documents" was no longer a folder of the root directory on the C: drive. Instead, it is now buried in a folder called "C:\Documents And Settings\User Name\My Documents" for each user of the machine.
