Even though I've been using linux for about a year and a half I still have no idea how the file system is laid out. I just kinda find my way through it, but it seems awfully scattered to me. So do we have any good guides to it's hierarchy? And not just some picture of it with one sentence per directory. I like more detail than that.

Take a look at this page (http://tldp.org/LDP/Linux-Filesystem-Hierarchy/html/) from tldp.org.

That'a good and detailed one that I also like. But beware that somethings are different in ubuntu.
