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."

This is plain stupid
by LaNcom on Sat 10th May 2003 14:06 UTC

I don't know why

'C:Documents and SettingsUser ArschMy Documents'

is so much better than

'/home/arsch/Documents'

or

'C:Program FilesAdobeIllustrator 10/System/Application/Whatever'

is easier to understand than

'/usr/local/bin'

But well, maybe I'm the only one who likes to keep it short and clean.
I like the FHS, and I don't know why we should fix it, 'cause it's not broken - most users are just plain stupid (or lazy, or ignorant).
