GoboLinux is an alternative Linux
distribution which redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy.
GoboLinux is a Linux distribution that breaks with the historical Unix
directory hierarchy. Basically, this means that there are no directories
such as /usr and /etc. The main idea of the alternative hierarchy is to
store all files belonging to an application in its own separate subtree;
therefore we have directories such as /Programs/GCC/2.95.3/lib.
To allow the system to find these files, they are logically grouped in
directories such as /System/Links/Executables, which, you guessed it,
contains symbolic links to all executable files inside the Programs
To maintain backwards compatibility with traditional Unix/Linux apps, there
are symbolic links that mimic the Unix tree, such as "/usr/bin ->
/System/Links/Executables", and "/sbin ->
/System/Links/Executables" (this example shows that arbitrary
differentiations between files of the same category were also removed).
