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.

I mean, with the advent of tab completion, is it really worth dropping the e in user?


Either I've misunderstood or you have!
user without e would be usr and that is not short for user, but for unix shared recources.

But then again I might have misunderstood your post, making the quote in the top here being out out of context?
