To be fair that statement loses a lot of meaning without the stuff that was attached to it.

To be fair, you made a general statement, and then gave a very unique, miniscule example that wasn't the easiest example to follow. Libraries...all the are is pointers to folders. We had been discussing redirecting My Docs folders or just using libraries...that's it.

I've read your post several times and I'm trying to figure out what you mean, and how it relates to a Library. You seem to take issue with people going through libraries rather than just directly to the file...but when you use a library, you are going right to the file. Yes, I'm confused because I'm not having much luck deciphering.

I do not see the point.
That is the point.
I wasn't trying to start an argument anyway so never mind.

I'm not trying to start an argument. I'm just trying to put the correct info out there. The point of libraries is to organize your data if you haven't done so yourself, and to do away with having to redirect your system created user folders. You've been around long enough that I'm sure you see the common recommendation to store your data and files on a separate drive from your OS and apps. That was the case before...and now especially after, SSDs have become commonplace. Libraries let you still maintain the default "locations" when saving files....but the physical location is now on a separate drive. Roughly the same end result of folder redirection...without messing with core system settings. For example...if a Word is set to always look to your Documents library when saving or opening...it will still find your documents by default...just in the new physical location.

That's it. That was the core of our discussion. It's unrelated to any kind of playlist with media files.

There is a disconnect here, it's apparent neither of us understands what the other is driving at. That's why I just dropped the whole subject.

There apparently is, so I agree. I was continuing in the discussion of libraries versus folder redirection, but I can say that's been covered now.

Sorry for the bump! I couldn't buy the new PC because I was low on money and it all went into investment. But I will hopefully buy it next month if everything goes well!

Anyways, I guess I'd update the specs list a bit to reflect the latest hardware.
What do you think of this list?

Intel Core i5-3570K, EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, Cooler Master HAF 912 - System Build - PCPartPicker

Any advice is highly appreciated, thank you for your time!
