Basically yes, the problem is that shortcut support must be implemented
in the application, therefore most application (especially Unix ported
ones) see the shortcuts as simple textfiles.

In other words, unlike in Unix, an "open('mylink')" does open the link
itself, not the destination the link is pointing to.

I think it's wonderful how Microsoft constantly reinvents the wheel - and gives it a non-standard shape every time.
