I have discovered some very interesting distribution some time ago.
What makes it so interesting is the fact that it uses a different way of using the filesystem. Here the description from distrowatch:
GoboLinux is a Linux distribution that breaks away from 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 hierarchy. 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).
I really do believe that this is a very nice way of keeping your hard-drive clean and always have the possibility to easily check on installed/or not installed files.
Yet I do like Mint very much and I think it is a great distro. Enjoy using it every day.
What do you think about adapting this sort of filesystem-usage? Would it bring us too far from ubuntu? Is it possible after all? Would you consider using it? (I am not so much of a technical guy that I know if it is possible to implement this to a already very stable and nice distro, but I would really like to see it in action and I am too afraid to try another distro at this point, because Mint is just too great!!! )
