I also dislike "etc". But I do like the consistancy of using 3 letters and
only lowercase. I think a better choice would have been "cfg". And I
agree about "usr". Something like "sys" would have been a nicer name.
But oh well, it's not bad enough to warrant such a large change. And the
Gobo names will also be disliked by some. I really didn't like the
arrangement of the "System" folder nor did I appreciate the mixing of
non-chaning files like binaries and configuration files in a single
"Programs" directory. One nice thing about /usr is that there is really
no need to modify anything in it. You don't need to back it up because it
should consist of files extracted from packages.
