Since day one, I have been “confused” by the OS X file structure. Once again, in my defense, I remind that I have spent the last 40 years dealing with MS-DOS.

How that things are up and running, and I’m getting the hang of Mac - I decided to dig a bit deeper into the file hierarchy. Still confused - in fact I am not sure my structure is correct.

At the top is [myname Macbook Pro] - containing Mac HD and Network.This may take some room - but here is the structure. Why does the Library file appear twice?

I still need to break down folders such as Excel, Word, Page, etc. further - but is this structure correct?

I still need to breakdown some Doc folders further - but does this look right?
