I like the idea behind , but I'm curious about how it actually shakes out in practice.

IMO the nix-like filesystem hierarchy has always been kind of bad for non-technical users, and can even be confusing for those who do have a lot of experience with it.



I suspect it might work out like OSX.

Easy virtual filesystem presented to the user, background-level symlinks to keep everything *NIX.

@deadsuperhero well enough. I like the Unix hierarchy now, but probably would have latched on to Gobo when I was first starting with Linux.

I'm considering sticking it on some boxes which only support a single drive, but otherwise I like the standard hierarchy's possibilities for crazy mount schemes.

@deadsuperhero Reading about this is making me want to run Linux again. Not being able to find where stuff gets installed is one of my biggest frustrations, frankly for all three of the big OSs.
