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?"

According to some fraction of the 1% of desktop Linux users, everything is hunky dory. With numbers like that, it must be perfect.

Market Share Trolling - That's Nice!!
Ahh, statistics pulled right out of the arse -
always the last refuge of logical fallacy.

Anyway, back to the grown-up discussion:
I fully enjoy the use of hardware accelerated graphics
AND network transparency every, single day -
all on a filesystem that is *gasp* FHS-based.

What is broken here that needs fixing?
