Dear VSL team,

I do appreciate the class, sophistication and quality of support you bring to the world of music production, however, I would like to make a request that your programmers start respecting the Macintosh conventions. Currently VSL software creates files and folders all over the place and this makes it difficult to maintain a clean and organised operating system. This is one of the curses in the PC world and should not be brought over to the Mac side.

To give some examples:

VSL folder in my home folder (containing some sort of cache files). The home folder is generally best kept to the default folders that Mac OS creates. Things would get pretty messy if every developer decided to put folders in there. The proper place for such files is in the Library folder.

The Custom Data folder in the Shared folder (which has been discussed but I would like to see an option to change this as I never had any permission problems and I really don't want my custom files to be in a strange spot I would never think to look unless I read about it).

All sorts of preference files (could so easily be placed in one VSL folder in the Preferences folder which then makes it so much easier to check for corrupted or unnecessary files).

The same is true for elicenser, but I suppose there is no hope for any changes there.

Anyway, I think you know what I mean.
