Because for me <path>/file.php is more intuiteve, and better 
readable/understandable (sory for my bad english) than only <path>file.php.
As far as i remember i used <path>\<file> even in "MS-DOS 5" times. 
Later was, MS.DOS 6.x series, MS Windows 3.x series, MS Windows 9x 
series, then i got internet connection and i was also using 
<path>/<file> in my work, then came Windows 2000 and Windows Server 
series - all time standard is <path>/file not <path>file, now i'm 
developing Wordpress themes and im also using <path>/<file>. Why change 
something, which is standard for over 20 years of computing?
