Not normal, please, I'm a perfectly normal user.
Those users who should never have to care about that are the _begginers_
or very basic users.
As you get to know your system, the power of the shell and the thousands
of commands with one for almost anything you need, you inevitably have
to know (and care) about /usr, /dev, etc...
For the sanity of basic users, they should be masked from this but
this thread is starting to sound a little strange... let's change the
