Actually, you can create such a folder, but I wouldn't recommend it anyway, because (unlike avast! ;)) most programs wouldn't be able to access it.

It's a reserved name folder... you won't be able to create it as Igor said.

Actually, I said you can create it - if you know how ;) (no external tools, such as Linux, required)
But it's kinda useless / hard to work with.
