Sorry about the quotation confusion.

NTFS also has limits on the maximum number of files for a filesystem.
There is no complete escape from the underlying limitations of
trade-offs of easy processing versus performance versus capacity that
lead to these limitations. There are also notable performance limits
on having too many files in a directory. We could have a long
discussion about the fundamentals: suffice to say that organizing a
bunch of associated bits into a single file, rather than scattering
many such bits around a filesystem and overpopulating a directory or a
filesystem is not your friend.
