    Linux is not Windows and it doesn't store packages in a single location. Files are distributed according to their type and permissions.
    /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin for binaries and /lib, /usr/lib etc for libraries.
    Check filesystem structure here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
