Editorial Earlier this week, we ran a story on GoboLinux, and the distribution's effort to replace the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard with a more pleasant, human-readable, and logical design. A lot of people liked the idea of modernising/replacing the FHS, but just as many people were against doing so. Valid arguments were presented both ways, but in this article, I would like to focus on a common sentiment that came forward in that discussion: normal users shouldn't see the FHS, and advanced users are smart enough to figure out how the FHS works.

The directories, their names are capitalized.


Really though, most users never touch the system directories, and people who actually have to will be able to remember them. It would be nice if the various distributions could standardize on a (non-capitalized, for the love of god) directory structure of course.
