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."

It'll be there

It'll be there actually, see the SuSE linux / (root) directory for instance. It has a couple of (relatively new) directories: media (contains cdrom, dvd, floppy, etc) and windows (contains C, D, E, etc). This will make a new user (from windows) happy without breaking the Unix tradition too much. Eventually the progress I've seen convince me that more easier directory-tree (also apps) is ahead. Way ahead though ;-)

Have fun :-)
