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.

Member since:

Gobo is really only trying to address that one problem. I doubt they have the skillset or the manpower to deal with the other problems, like the X dependency everything has

Actually, they are doing a couple of other interesting things: the Gobo init system is breathtaking in its elegance, as is the "recipe/compile" system.
