Could Ubuntu's folder structure be like this?
The new version, code-named "Beefy Miracle", includes a controversial change which provoked lengthy debate within the Linux world during Fedora 17 development – the new Fedora does away with the /lib/, /lib64/, /bin/ and /sbin/ directories. In Fedora 17, all of the files which were previously located in these directories are now in similarly named sub-directories of /usr/. To ensure backwards compatibility, the deleted directories have been replaced with symbolic links that point to the new directories.
What if we play with the same idea and place those directories in /usr?
