Have you ever wondered how and why things are organised in Linux filesystems? Do /opt, /var, /home, /usr baffle and confuse you? Now, I have been a Linux user for several years and, having used several different Linux distributions I have a pretty good idea where things usually reside. But, somehow, I hadn’t come across this before, and it’s such a useful thing to have read, especially if you are a linux newbie! Thanks, Lance.

The pdf link at the bottom of the page is an interesting read.
