I completely agree with you. The change is completly cosmetic, and will
couase all sort of existing things that expect things to be mounted into
/mnt/* to fail. Plus my fingers are still typing /mnt, and than hitting
delete and retyping /mnt and hitting delete, and than slowly trying to
type /media. And it was almost two weeks since I'm playing with Core 3.
Argh! I wonder whose bright idea that was.
