Fedora Core Good news from the Linux world. Fedora has announced its intention to drastically alter the file system layout of its Linux distribution. The plan's been out for a while, but was brought to my attention by Brian Proffitt (still the best name ever) over at ITWorld. The gist is to move all binaries to /usr/bin, and all libraries to /usr/lib and /user/lib64.

You think they don't know of GoboLinux? I would be gob-smacked if they didn't.


I would be surprised if they did. NIH adversity runs deep in the Fedora project.

I'm sure they do. The Linux community is still relatively small (and was smaller still when Gobo made its big splash). More likely they don't like the workarounds gobo used to make things still function (and I'm not talking about backwards compatibility).
