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."

Great post Rayiner Hashem.

I was getting ready to say the same thing more or less.
Why ruin 30 years worth of software development to make a newbie happy.
So 100 newbies learning linux is better than the sevral million who have to re-learn it? I fail to see the logic in this.
If you want to piss off a certain user base, its probably
not a good idea to piss off the user base that is developing all the software.
