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.

After Fedora, everyone else will follow...just watch! I truly support this move.

While this might go against the LSB and FHS...

Do we really care? The LSB and FHS are a mess when it comes to this so who cares? Do we really want to keep living in the past - 30+ years old rules?? The people in charge of LSB and FHS will have to think twice when everyone follows Fedora or we will just create LSB++ and FHS++ respectively ;)
