Most folder names in the *nix world are lower case. It makes them easier to type in my opinion. However, everything in my home-dir is capitalized! Why is this? Is it possible to change them?
The only solution I have come up with so far is putting soft links in my home dir for each folder with lower case names.

Downloads can't be shortened to
Which of the following looks more like a *nix directory structure to you?
Desktop Documents Downloads Music Pictures Public Templates Videos
desk docs dls music img pub templates vids
Is there a reason for this inconsistency or is this just a legacy issue?
