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.

This and many more concerns are answered very well by the GoboLinux creator:

In fact, the concerns on typing-friendliness always comes up in discussions about the GoboLinux tree. To that, I can only respond that, in a properly configured shell like the one that comes by default with GoboLinux, typing /Programs takes the exact same number of keystrokes as typing /usr: slash, lowercase p, Tab.
