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.

"
what are you talking about? you can install programs wherever you want on windows

It would be nice if people actually thought a little about the post they reply to rather than just reacting to it ;)

At no point did I say you couldn't install apps where-ever you wanted in Windows. I just said it matters. In Windows there is no global directory for 3rd party application like there is in Linux. This means everything has to be called for with absolute paths when writing scripts.
