OSNews, Generic OSes This article is a inspired by some of the ideas which seem be constantly floating around my mind whenever I think about or read about operating systems. Surely, every time-served OS-geek carries a mental list of this sort around with them? This is a summary of all of the features which I would like to see in my dream FOSS based Operating System.

"What does the packaging system for FreeBSD have to do with anything mentioned in the article, or anything I wrote in my comment?"

This is the reference text:

Look into the --prefix option. If you want to know which files belong to a given program, install it to some temporary location such as ~/tmp_install.
}

I just mentioned this packaging system because it is modified by a "make install" command. So, if you want to know wich files belong to a given program, you would only have to ask the package database.
