GoboLinux

GoboLinux is a modular Linux distribution: it organizes the programs in your system in a new, logical way. Instead of having parts of a program thrown at /usr/bin, other parts at /etc and yet more parts thrown at /usr/share/something/or/another, each program gets its own directory tree, keeping them all neatly separated and allowing you to see everything that’s installed in the system and which files belong to which programs in a simple and obvious way.

Gobo looks like it might be a nice Linux to try out!

    GoboLinux sounds like bringing update-problems specific to Windows to Linux. I don’t need every app to bring it’s own libpng/libsomething along, which has to be updated from time to time.

    It looks like applications make use symbolic links for shared libraries.
