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."

Wasn't it on OSNEWS last year that there was a direct quote by the guy who wrote the file system originally saying all this was nonsense?

What it meant back then is not important, what's important what it means today and today it's an established *nix convention.
