Linux "This document outlines the set of requirements and guidelines for file and directory placement under the Linux operating system according to those of the FSSTND v2.3 final (January 29, 2004) and also its actual implementation on an arbitrary system. It is meant to be accessible to all members of the Linux community, be distribution independent and is intended to discuss the impact of the FSSTND and how it has managed to increase the efficiency of support interoperability of applications, system administration tools, development tools, and scripts as well as greater uniformity of documentation for these systems."

Don't blame Windows if you're using Explorer for navigation.

Wait--let me get this straight. Don't blame Windows for coming with a crap file manager? Something as basic and critical as a file manager?

But actually, that's not the problem. I can use Explorer; I never really had any problem with it that I recall. I have tried others very briefly (pretty sure Total Commander was one of them), but either didn't like them or the idea that you have to pay for such basic functionality that comes with the system in the first place (also not a fan of nagware)... and again, Explorer worked just fine for me.

The real problem that I'm referring to is the file system itself, not the interface/file manager (Explorer). It sucks no matter what file manager you throw it it. And I have to say that I wasn't exactly amazed with the GoboLinux file system either... seemed heavily Apple-inspired to me. Their idea was never adopted by anything else and where is GoboLinux today? Seems it's long been dead. No new release in years. It was interesting, though.
