Linux Lately, we've all read a lot of articles about desktop Linux - so many that it's getting hard to tell them apart. One says "Why Linux Sucks," the next "My Success With Linux." Even Michael Robertson of Lindows.com joined the fun with his "Why Desktop Linux Sucks, Today." But very few people have proposed anything radical, and I believe that's what's needed to take GNU/Linux to the next level.

About the filesystem layout crap
by Miles Robinson on Wed 30th Apr 2003 04:57 UTC

Here's an article ( http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2003/4/7/1599/91200 ) I think you should check out, at the very least for the portion titled "Change the filesystem layout." I didn't really bother reading the rest of the article because that first page turned me off, and a quick glancing/perusal of the other two yielded a sort of "What do I care?" response from me what with all these articles about Linux desktop this and Linux desktop that. I'm A-OK with people writing a ton of articles on this subject, but not within this one and a half or so week period. It's like a flamewar with no official sides, and it just makes both sides look idiotic.

I'll keep my dual-boot and enjoy the best of both worlds, thank you.
