This has bothered me for years, but when Microsoft FINALLY dropped "\Documents and Settings" for "\Users", I rejoiced.
Right up until they forgot to fix "Program Files" too.
Microsoft, here's how to do it without breaking backwards-compatibility: C:\Programs. Then, an alias named "Program Files" points to Programs. And add a warning to MSDN and the Packaging and Install tools to stop using retarded conventions.
(Incidentally, I did this when installing Strawberry Perl because it can't handle living under a directory with a space. On one hand, I can't blame them, but on the other ...really, guys?!
Besides, you don't need a directory off of the root of the drive. Stop with that C:\Strawberry nonsense.
