3. Mounts are also embedded into the user interface, rather than in the unix

the gui mount system (kde and gnome).

This is not true, in case of gnome you can access everything mounted
by nautilus / gvfs by accessing ~/.gvfs works with ANY app.

I was not aware of this, as it is not obvious, and poorly documented - I have searched for info on
this, however I have noticed the mounts, when running the mount command, however it is not
clear if the names remain consistent.

And why make the mounts hidden ?  ( leading . hides the directory), seems highly illogical approach.
