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.

Personally I think the layout of the /home (or /users) directories should be empty.

It is me deciding how to keep my own files. Not the operating system. Instead recently all operating systems start to drive me crazy with thinks like "Images" "Music" "Documents" (heck, even Ubuntu started with this rubbish). Is there any serious reasons for users wanting that?
