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."

To all those who are saying "don't like it, don't use it." Really, your being silly. No one is forcing you to use this distribution. Is it's existance offending you?

A lot of poeple want a new file heirarchy. This distribution makes that a reality. If it turns out to be better in significant ways no doubt we'll see either more distributions with such a system or this one will become very popular. It's about time this was implemented consider how many times it's suggested.

Either way, stop knocking people for having different ideas than the accepted standard. This site is for interesting news. It does not exist so that everyone can convince the world that their ideas are the only correct ones.
