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.

this is the general theme with unix. It's great either for those who have no problem with grep and awk on the one hand or total newbies who are satisfied with the apps that come with ubuntu but the problems begin once you get a bit beyond that. It's either for newbies or total hard core and no in between.
