hmm, not a chance?

to me it's not having any potential.

Regarding the three char directories -- it helps when typing but then, we have a command line completion feature.

The FHS/LSB is good, this one is a drawback. IMHO o course.

Care to explain with logic rather than emotions though why you feel that way? I'm not trying to flame/troll/whatever... I honestly can not see any real logistic benefit to the legacy Unix FSH other than it's what people have grown accustomed to.

it';s not really legacy. it's being thought of for reasons. Throwing overboard those ideas is not a rather good idea.

People who don't understand much of it won't bother, just like windows. They use a graphical interface and all will be fine.

People who need to do stuff with it, like administrating will find binaries in places that shouldn't be there. Unless you think that the reasons of having separate binary paths is not being thought of. Well, if you can't find the separate paths, let's just present is as a heap of all stoff.

Finally most of the more serious distributions start using the FHS/LSB setup and now. well, let's make things 'easy'. It 'seems' easy but people with some administration talents know it's not. Those who don't have this talent, don't *need* it. So what's the point?
