I came to ubuntu from Windows. And one thing Windows does well is make it easy to find an executable file (i.e., it's in C:\Program Files\). Finding an executable file in Ubuntu is frustrating & lacks organization that makes sense to users. Fedora is considering a fix for this issue. I think Ubuntu should do the same.

Here's a link to an article that talks about Fedora's idea: http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Fedora-considers-moving-all-binaries-to-usr-bin-1369642.html?view=print
