public_html is a hard one. Nautilus and Evolution should be
dot-directories, they annoy me in command line mode too. Or would if I
didn't have 500 disorganized things in ~ anyway. ;-) Since they are
only program-edited I don't get why I have to see them.

As much as I dislike magic files or folders, perhaps some educated magery
could help here. For long-time "standard" things such as public_html,
perhaps a perky icon is in order.

Of course, if anyone says anything like "My Web Files", I'd be the first to
fire up the flamethrower. ;)

What are the main reasons that make "hackers" see this as a bad thing?

I don't want to clutter my desktop with shit I don't want to see. Like software I am compiling, nsmail, na_imap (going away when moz quit crashing), public_html, etc. And I don't want to clutter my $HOME with launcher files etc.

Like I pointed out before (even tho you got pissed about it) if people can understand when windows does it, why the hell can't they understand when we do it?

If you just leave it the way it is, people can use it however they want. If they want all their shit in the desktop, fine. Use it. If they want separate $HOME and desktop, fine, click the "Home" button.

If they actually pop open a terminal on purpose, then they are probably clued enough to know the difference.

It is a non-issue, its a pipe-dream. Give it up. It isn't wanted by the majority of your users.
