    Yes, I think people don't like to change things. Like when Ubuntu changed their user interface from Gnome to Unity, everyone got very angry.

    But the traditional UNIX system has many advantages as well, especially stability. It has been used for about 35 years now, and the assumptions made when choosing the hierarchy were made for very good reasons. So no one really complains about the file hierarchy, they just learn how to use it.

    I see, so it is probably not a good idea to use GoboLinux, because there is no active development.

    So did you want to have the active development of Fedora or RedHat Enterprise, but the stylish GoboLinux filesystem hierarchy? If so, I think this is just not possible right now. Maybe some day when many people see the benefits of GoboLinux, this will be possible.

    But that's because Unity is just a terrible UI.

    good code is what makes something stable not really how to place the files. i heard a lot say CLI never freezes but I have seen it freeze a lot.

    yes as far as I see it though someone somewhere has to start the development. the project is going to be backed by a company as well.
