Editorial Earlier this week, we ran a story on GoboLinux, and the distribution's effort to replace the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard with a more pleasant, human-readable, and logical design. A lot of people liked the idea of modernising/replacing the FHS, but just as many people were against doing so. Valid arguments were presented both ways, but in this article, I would like to focus on a common sentiment that came forward in that discussion: normal users shouldn't see the FHS, and advanced users are smart enough to figure out how the FHS works.

What if the same way an app "registers" its extension with Windows, it registers some sort of schema definition in a master table and gets its own "table" with its own schema?

The problem is moved to poorly designed apps/schemas/queries, but nonetheless, permits each application to have its own schema.
