Luckily the world is going to end in ~4 years, so we won't have to
worry about what the convention is 10 years from now.
Granted, if we're still doing a lot of the stuff we're doing now,
in 10 years, we have failed anyway. I hope $HOME will be much less
important in much less time than that.
The desktop is at a point where it's really only useful for hackers
and data entry personnel any more. It's not the best interface for
games, music, video, or lots of other activities.
