Finally, someone has enough sense to start what needs to be done. Come-on people, doesn't the way the file system is arranged here make more sense to YOU? Isn't it one million times more intuitive? Unix was great when it was first invented, but its definitely time to move beyond the praise-singing and make some improvements. Yes, keep backward compatibility, for just a few years, but that shouldn't be an excuse to get stuck in 30 years ago.
