Well, you *can* use them to group your files. And you can do this in 
Oberon, too. So, either we say that the "dotted" filenames in OS390 are 
used to build a hierarchy/directories - then Oberon HAS a 
hierarchy/directories (because you can do the same here), or we say that 
this structure is not hierarchical/directory using - then there is no 
need for a hierarchy, just because of the number of files.

But doesn't Oberon/BB have its own FS? I thought it was NOT FAT.

I know next to nothing about it. Could you tell me more?
