Hi Danny, 

I'm not saying that OSError and FileNotFoundError are equivalent. I'm saying that the open() API, as documented, raises OSError when opening the file fails.

The way to check whether a file exists is to use os.path.exists(path) or os.path.isfile(path). 

I don't quite follow your last point - opening a file is indeed a file operation, but it contains within it a directory operation (finding the file).
