At least UNIX lets you put anything except a null byte or a / in a filename.
Windows won't let you put a colon in a filename, and sometimes / and \ mean the
same thing, and sometimes they don't.  And when exactly are multiple periods
allowed?  I personally like the file manager and widgets that comes with IRIX:
type a space in a filename and it produces an underscore.  The only time I don't
like spaces in filenames is when I forget to allow for it in shell scripts. bah.
