Desegregate the filesystem and make it human understandable

Registered by Snowmotion on 2005-10-26

The filesystem hierarchy of UNIX, which Linux inherited, is obscure, fragmented, and difficult to understand. I refer to not just the abbreviations, but the manner in which all kinds of libraries, binaries, and help files are segregated and scattered all over the hierarchy. Since Ubuntu is Linux for human beings (not specialists), its filesystem should also be restructured and made intelligible to human beings (like the one in Mac OS X, GoboLinux, etc). Let Ubuntu bring an end to the traditional UNIX filesystem apartheid.
