Macs suck: file paths

I am starting on a new series I call “Macs suck”. Case in point: file paths.
OS X is a UNIX system (BSD in fact). Paths are thus in the form /directory/subdirectory/file. But OS X presents paths in a convulated form: Drive/directory/subdirectory/file. Notice the problem? Programs which expect form A, when given a path in form B, get totally confused since that path isn’t valid!
