A different filesystem hierarchy for Linux

GoboLinux is “a Linux distribution based on an alternative directory hierarchy” specifically, binaries are now in /System/Links/Executables instead of /usr/bin, that sort of thing. A kind of MacOSX-y sort of thing. I like this idea; ROX-Linux (an operating system centered arond the desktop, enduser and ROX-Filer file manager), a project I’m peripherally involved in (and would like to help more) is redefining the filesystem hierarchy as well.


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
