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.

You should have it as /Applications and /Programs since it would help guarantee that the programs show up first if sorting alphabetically. Also you would always have symlinks to the traditional file system that you can use.
