I don't see anything harmful in prepopulating new users home directories
with some clues how you might want to organize your data, it might be
helpful to a computer-illiterate.
Just as long as you don't *force* those
directories to be used
[...] I'm not going to change my >10 year old
home directory structure just because some new application thinks it knows
better than me.
Site note: I like Gnome and that it has less knobs to adjust. And that
it sometimes forces a user into the right direction. But it should not
force the user to much into a scheme.
P.S.:We should also not forget users on the command-line and with
different file manager users. They will get confused if directories have
a different name suddenly
P.P.S.:Even today Gnome annoys me already with the Desktop and Templates
dir they create -- that's why I have
alias ls='ls --color=tty -I Desktop -I Templates'
in my .bashrc :-/
