Featured Articles: “Understanding the bin, sbin, usr/bin , usr/sbin split”

Note:  This is probably the best writeup of the fragmented bin and lib system of Linux I have ever read so far.  Head past the quote for the full article:

“Standards bureaucracies like the Linux Foundation (which consumed the Free
Standards Group in its’ ever-growing accretion disk years ago) happily
document and add to this sort of complexity without ever trying to understand
why it was there in the first place. ‘Ken and Dennis leaked their OS into the
equivalent of home because an RK05 disk pack on the PDP-11 was too small” goes
whoosh over their heads.”
