Editorial GoboLinux is a distribution which sports a different file system structure than 'ordinary' Linux distributions. In order to remain compatible with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, symbolic links are used to map the GoboLinux tree to standard UNIX directories. A post in the GoboLinux forums suggested that it might be better to turn the concept around: retain the FHS, and then use symbolic links to map the GoboLinux tree on top of it. This sparked some interesting discussion. Read on for more details.

I'd rather go to ~/.fonts, but if showing hidden files is too much then well, it's not like it's hidden precisely:

Considering all user config files are stored in dot prefixed directories in ~ it is also consistent, although it might not be your thing.
