    When was this website first published or this idea introduced?

    2012-01-01.

    Sure it made its way into the world. It’s true that I live under a rock, but it is now 2017 and I never heard of this…

      Blazing adoption.

        I like how this layout considers the notion of networked computers a fundamental part with the /hosts directory. Unix was born out of a main server many things clients model, this goes more towards a decentralised approach closer to today’s reality.

          The host mounts are nice, but otherwise it’s hard to see any real value that couldn’t be achieved by moving most of everything under /usr/.

          Anyone remember that Linux distro that has its own filesystem layout?

          Based on the principle of object-orientation

          That’s why it will never gain traction. Doing OOP databases was a bad idea so why would a file system be any different?

            .app distribution on Mac has some nice characteristics. To install the whole app (“object”) you just copy the folder.

              ah the joys of copying “System” folder back in the day… :-)
