Enough mess in / already.
If we ever want to have linux on the desktop, we need to have a readable root filesystem for basic users, at the moment it isn't.
Either we have a gui wrapper that hides all the details, or we need to move things around (Gobelinux does this?)
I have been using linux for over 9 years, and I am sorry to say that I still hate the filesystem layout combined with the average X gui, how many times have I had to go .., .., ./mnt, ./cdrom, ./XXX , ./YYY to get to some file through some very ugly file selector: think all non-kde non-gnome apps (that's quite a few) and the old gnome file selector is hell too..
Not to mention all those apps with their own crap fileselectors...
