 It is a reserved word from the DOS days (like "prn")  I think it stands for
"console"

Actually, you can't create a folder named:

CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8,
COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9

An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere named as
"con".
This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable...
At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why this
happened!
Try it out yourself...
