Linux "Lately, there has been lots of discussion on the current state of Linux as a desktop system, and articles pop up here and there, occasionally with very good ideas.

Changing the filesystem layout doesn't worth the trouble. The advantages of doing so are very small (But it seems to please a lot Windows users). It's not like Joe User spend it's time in the file system and users that does knows the current FS layout anyway...which has a rationale behind it.
IMHO there are more important things to do in linux land like better integration between programs and the desktop in general.
