    isnt this post more suitable for Programming and Development? Forums' admins?

    Probably not, I never liked Gobolinux's filesystem layout, too windows like.
    I never had an issue with the linux filesystem layout

    Yes, its on the To-Do List of Ubuntu 99-04 LTS,
    Filesystem Hierarchy replaced by C: , D: , E: ...

    They generally don't look through these threads.

    And this idea isn't new:
    Idea #310: Filesystem hierarchy simplification.
    Do you want the filesystem hierarchy to change?

    Re: GoboLinux like File System Hierarchy

    I really liked GoboLinux's implementation of the file system. Was it perfect? No, of course not.

    BUT, the fact is that many linux distros still adhere to the layouts of old UNIX systems.

    I'd totally use Gobo again, but they didn't have KDE4 last time I checked...

    To me, the kind of file system as in GoboLinux makes much more sense, it looks a lot more natural.

    cześć, lipin.
    You frightened some people with your question, it shook their bases.
    That may be reserved for the future...imagine no more debs, rpms etc., install and remove any software neatly, Firefox 1, 2 and 3 to choose etc.
