Origin of Linux File System
As a new Linux (FC6) user I'm curious about the rationalization behind how the Linux file system was defined. Why binaries are scattered all over the / in all those directories as opposed to what OS X does.
I get that there are some directories for admin based applications and some for users but why have bin and sbin directories in root and in /usr?
I've found lots of tutorials that explain what the directories are and what they do, I'm more interested in the "history" of the development.
I'm a flake.
