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."

GoboLinux *IS* FHS compatible
by Antartica on Sat 10th May 2003 12:25 UTC

I've been using Gobolinux for some months now, and it's only a way of package management. A nice one in my opinion, but no more, no less.

GoboLinux is FHS compatible. There is no reason for ditching the FHS standard.

In fact, my "other" machine rund debian, and when I wanted some program and didn't had the time to download/recompile it, It wasn't difficult to use alien to convert it to tar.gz and decompress in /Programs (nad running the script to update the links of course).
