Linux "This document outlines the set of requirements and guidelines for file and directory placement under the Linux operating system according to those of the FSSTND v2.3 final (January 29, 2004) and also its actual implementation on an arbitrary system. It is meant to be accessible to all members of the Linux community, be distribution independent and is intended to discuss the impact of the FSSTND and how it has managed to increase the efficiency of support interoperability of applications, system administration tools, development tools, and scripts as well as greater uniformity of documentation for these systems."

Linux fhs is a joke. It's been the source of countless and endless argument. Some people use it, some use only portions, and others disregard it completely. Obviously there is a problem but the linux community is far too segmented to ever resolve it. Too many people with too many varying (and often opposing) opinions. The beauty of linux is if you don't like something, you can change it. The Achilles heel is uniformity is thrown right out the window.

What? You don't like a standard with so many optional parts that two distros can be "FHS-compliant" without having more than 4 directories in common? ;)
