Linux "Lately, there has been lots of discussion on the current state of Linux as a desktop system, and articles pop up here and there, occasionally with very good ideas. However, none have surprised me more than this one. It was all very hyphothetical, but had pretty radical ideas on how the author thought the Linux directory tree should be reorganized."

While I like the FHS and do not agree with Adam Scheinberg's or this author's ideas, you must admit that this is not a "linux for the desktop" article. He wasn't recommending it to newbies, just reporting on how he created a system for himself and some small group of people.

I support his endeavours to build himself a custom Linux; however, I'd prefer it that the FHS remain the principal guideline. I'd certainly not like to switch.
