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.

Would like to see this gain momentum

If it could gain some more momentum it could be a scene-changing approach. Until it does, though, it will remain an interesting experiment, like Init-NG and Autopackage. I hope it doesn't stagnate like those two projects have and lose it's direction.
