Stepping away from the past
Is there any projects online right now for changing the "Filesystem Hierarchy" in Linux?
I'm not talking about hiding the actual heirarchy like Mac and Gobo, I'm talking about actually rewriting it.
The one thing I have always loved about Linux, is its complete focus on leaving everything open for the end-user to decide what they want, so they can peice it together. Example, you dont like your shell, no problem choose from many others that fit your needs.
What I find most funny is, almost every person that I talk to in the Linux world express their dislike for the hierarchy being based on Unix and yet I have yet to see anyone or organization try to abandon it. The unix hierarchy was not built for todays world, and the number of applications modern desktop mechines envoke into their systems.
Strangely even "Linux From Scratch" the so called "Make it your way" assumes such a file system heirarchy and offers no means or explainations for going away from it.
If anyone knows of any URL that discusses this issue, or better is trying to do something about it please post it here. Please remember I'm not talking about links and hiding, I'm referring to a truely new hierarchy not surpressed by the old unix systems.
