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."

IMHO there are more important things to do in linux land like better integration between programs and the desktop in general.

And a comprehensible filesystem hierarchy is one such thing. It's there, it's part of the system, and the "desktop" can either choose to represent it as it is, or not represent it at all, in which case integration has been thrown out of the system altogether.
