Fedora Core Good news from the Linux world. Fedora has announced its intention to drastically alter the file system layout of its Linux distribution. The plan's been out for a while, but was brought to my attention by Brian Proffitt (still the best name ever) over at ITWorld. The gist is to move all binaries to /usr/bin, and all libraries to /usr/lib and /user/lib64.

Why not abandon directories entirely? Just shove everything into one big, disorganized, incomprehensible mess. Who cares if it confuses the heck out of users? It makes snapshotting easier.
