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."

Worse than that, on a really big project, we run out of characters in our system model hierarchies (around 260 max characters - I don't remember exact number off-hand except that it's small) unless you keep your folder names really short.

And we constantly must ask each other the eternal question, "So what did you map to M: to run that script again?"

Windows' drive letters are the abomination IMHO - a relic of the distant past where each floppy drive had to be manually tended with care. It's always a bit of a relief to me to return to a sane Linux / Unix unified file system.
