Editorial GoboLinux is a distribution which sports a different file system structure than 'ordinary' Linux distributions. In order to remain compatible with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, symbolic links are used to map the GoboLinux tree to standard UNIX directories. A post in the GoboLinux forums suggested that it might be better to turn the concept around: retain the FHS, and then use symbolic links to map the GoboLinux tree on top of it. This sparked some interesting discussion. Read on for more details.

Gobo is a fantastic concept, but I wasn't able to get it to run stably the 2 times that I tried it in the past. THe OS was stable, but I had a lot of application crashes :/

Maybe Ubuntu adopt the structure in 3 or 4 versions? It really has to be done for mainstream acceptance IMO.
