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.

The day they change the directory structure is the day I switch to solaris or freeBSD. Linux is a unix clone leave it like that. If i want my hand held i'd buy a mac.

hand held? It's the linux advocates who are arguing "who cares? Nobody needs to look at the directory because we have the pretty gnome on top"
