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.

When does a user ever type this?
They just select it in a list in the GUI. And the current ridiculous naming scheme is inpenetrable to them. And ugly.

Computers should be made for users and not developers.
