My Thoughts on GoboLinux

Well, I'm sure a lot of people have seen the recent story about GoboLinux and it's innovative directory structure. I've been chatting about it with people on the Gentoo forums and I've come to the conclusion that the new structure is quite a good idea.
Many people don't like it because they're resistant to change, but the fact is that Linux is still using a directory structure long ago considered obsolete. It's very difficult to find things in the standard structure, especially for a new user, and sometimes even for a veteran. How do you know that one particular system didn't decide to put all their apps in
I fully endorse the concept of implementing GoboLinux's file structure as an option in Gentoo Linux. However, I won't be switching over to Gobo anytime soon, Portage is still best in my book.
