Linux Directories

Posted by astromme

There is (what I assume is) an April Fools joke about Ubuntu system directories here:


With that said, I honestly wonder if it wouldn’t be a good idea to take a critical look at the naming scheme. I’m used to it by now, and so placing some apps in /usr, some in /usr/local, some in /opt, etc… seems normal to me. However, it would make navigating directories that much more intuitive if we were able to look at something more like the examples in the above link.

Just my 2c.
