You'd think so, wouldn't you?
However, many years ago I was on a Windows NT course (don't ask) and someone in the group asked the trainer if Microsoft had overcome the "limit" of allowing a maximum of 256 characters in a filename.
Why would anyone need 256 characters, let alone more???? Some people.... ;)
