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.

WinFS isn't done yet, what we got with vista was Windows Desktop Search. Aparently they are still working on Winfs, although as you already mentioned, they have been working on that on and off since 95.

Seth Nickell started a project a few years ago to do a similar thing on linux, but to my knowledge it never really got anywhere http://www.gnome.org/~seth/storage/
