Yesterday, I showed how you could unhide the /Users folder in OS
X 10.9.3, the latest update to OS X that was released
yesterday. Yet many users, in comments, emails and on Twitter,
have pointed out that their /Users folder is not hidden. Here,
it’s hidden on both my Macs: a late 2011 Mac mini, and an early
2013 MacBook Pro.
It really doesn’t make sense for this folder to be hidden; it
contains the /Users/Shared folder, which you may want to use to
provide files to other users, since all users can access it. My
guess, given that not everyone sees the /Users folder as hidden,
is that this is a bug; one way or another. In other words, it
should either not be hidden, or it should be hidden for everyone.
