    The present format is not locgical. The one and only reason to use a date as the filename is to be able to logically sort the files from the name, which makes a lot of sense if you copy files and loose the create date. Hence, if you use the date as a default to name the file it should be sorted from most significant to lest significant, i.e. YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS or some variant of this scheme that makes sorting natural. There is no justification for a filename generation using a date format that makes sorting non-natural.

    Also, Microsoft being an internation company should acknowledge that the main user base of their programs are NON-US, and hence are normally not from a place that uses month day year date format. The US way is actually an odditiy not shared by almost any other country.
