File naming

Can anyone thing of a reason why I should not start a folder with an underscore on Linux and Windows base systems? Example: _music

I am trying to keep specific folders at the top when sorted alphabetically.

Thank you,

    I can't think of a specific reason.

    In windows, folders and files that start with '~' are usually temporary files/folders right?

    Yea, and they're great for hiding adult content in!

    I'm only kidding.

    It's way better to make a True Crypt archive and name it something like ~23478982.tmp.

    Or so I've heard...
