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.

Except that you would not have
/System
/Library
etc.
on AmigaOS. You would use device names to point to relevant directories, eg:
SYS:
Libs:
Devs:
Fonts:
C: (for commands)
etc.


I know that. I was referring to case sensitivity of *nix filesystems.

Then it does not matter where you put those directories and you could re-point any of those device names at will.


Yep.
