Linux Directory Structure (File System Structure) Explained with Examples by Ramesh Natarajan on September 8, 2010 Have you wondered why certain programs are located under /bin, or /sbin, or /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin? For example, less command is located under /usr/bin directory. Why not /bin, or /sbin, or /usr/sbin? What is the different between all these directories? In this article, let us review the Linux filesystem structures and understand the meaning of individual high-level directories. 1. / – Root Every single file and directory starts from the root directory.Only root user has write privilege under this directory.Please note that /root is root user’s home directory, which is not same as /. 2. Contains binary executables.Common linux commands you need to use in single-user modes are located under this directory.Commands used by all the users of the system are located here.For example: ps, ls, ping, grep, cp. 3. 4. 5. Contains device files.These include terminal devices, usb, or any device attached to the system.For example: /dev/tty1, /dev/usbmon0 6. 7. 8. 9.

Kensho For those who want to know: Reliable information on health, energy, media, war, elections, 9/11, more Universal property of music discovered Researchers at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam have discovered a universal property of musical scales. Until now it was assumed that the only thing scales throughout the world have in common is the octave. The many hundreds of scales, however, seem to possess a deeper commonality: if their tones are compared in a two- or three-dimensional way by means of a coordinate system, they form convex or star-convex structures. Convex structures are patterns without indentations or holes, such as a circle, square or oval. Almost all music in the world is based on an underlying scale from which compositions are built. 1000 scales By placing scales in a coordinate system (an 'Euler lattice') they can be studied as multidimensional objects. The research results were recently published in the scientific Journal of New Music Research.
