Hello everyone, i am muhammad ahmad mujtaba. Although it has been a week , since i have switched from Windows to Linux [Ubuntu & Debian] but i actually has no concept of their root directories.
I am very good at Windows operating system eg regisrty editing, NTFS partition related problems and softwares stuff etc.
I found Linux much different from Windows to learn and i am very excited to learn as much thing as i can learn about but for now i want to know what does the directory in which Linux [eg Ubuntu] has been installed, contains what folders and what does they mean.
During installation mount point was '/' :
Fresh Windows Operating system would atleast have following folders in root directory , usually C: drive. [x64 architecture].
Program Files [folders where x64 softwares are installed.]
Program FIles (x86) [folders where x86 softwares are installed.]
Users [ Users accounts ]
Windows [operating system files].
and Linux would have [Debian] , where drive name is 'File System' parallel to C: in Windows.
lost + found
I want to know where softwares are installed and short description of all these folder; it will help me understand and operate Linux well.
Thanks to everyone!
