Every wonder what all the Linux directories are for? Check this out:


Nice video! Very well put together, though there's a few notes you may want to save in the event you cover more of this topic in the future:
* Dennis Ritchie didn't co-write Linux
* MacOS is based on CMU Mach with parts of various BSDs (called XNU/Darwin)
* Most distros just dump all the binaries in /usr/bin and create symlinks elsewhere now


@architect Thanks! Yes the Ritchie thing was bad, I meant to say Unix but said Linux for whatever reason and didn't notice until long after it was uploaded, my bad. And I only mentioned BSD to keep it relevant towards Linux since most people know it compared to the Mach Kernel or Nextstep... 😁 Cheers!
