I'd like to agree but M$ automatically created stuff like

+-My Documents
¦ +-My eBooks
¦ +-My Pictures

and

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\

There are installations such as acrobat which automatically places stuff in the 'application Data' branch. If I change that directory to 'ApplicationData' or whatever, what happens to future installations which try to put stuff there and what happens to registry entries which refer to it?

In a perfect world everything belonging to a program, sits in either the program directory or a user specified location, but I havent been to such a place for a while.:-)
