There is much confusing about junction point on the internet. Some sites like Wikipedia claim that a junction point is a kind of soft link. Other sites refer to junction points as "directory hard links".

IMO "directory hard links" is wrong. Contrary to file hard links a junction point doesn't keep the target directory alive when the target is removed.
