OSNews, Generic OSes Ask OSNews is apparently quite popular among you guys; the questions just keep on coming in. Since David took on the first two, we decided to let me handle this one - it's an area I've personally covered before on OSNews: file system layouts. One of our readers, a Linux veteran, studied the GoboLinux effort to introduce a new filesystem layout, and wondered: "Why not adopt the more sensible file system from GoboLinux as the new LSB standard?"

RE[5]: Down with the FHS

If you are willing to disregard the significance of the "mythical desktop" and the trouble that UNIX has experienced gaining traction in that space, then there really isn't much to discuss.

There is this tiny company called Microsoft - you obviously
need to read up on them and their business practices.
... just to get you started

Ironically, the underlying message in my post was that UNIX reactionaries such as yourself are inadvertently sabotaging the chances of Linux on the desktop by resisting any change that may "destroy tradition."

Sir, logic please!!
WinXP is the dominant desktop system.
It still has %systemroot%\system32, regedit.exe
and CP/M Drive Letters.

If our arguments do not require logic, let me
just say "purple monkey dishwasher" and declare myself the winner!
