Handy, but why on earth do it in upper case!?

bicchi said...

Yeah! these are LOWER case files; It would have looked better.

Nice to have, Thanks.

Uppercase is actually quite wrong, but aside from that, is this compliant with the FHS?

Steve Tose said...

I don't think anyone's going to go through their fs and rename everything uppercase so I guess it doesn't matter what case it is. I wasn't confused and have printed extra copies for my brothers. Thanks for the resource!

Nice chart !

The quoted word "ROOT" at the top is a comment/label and should be *black*, not blue, for consistency - and to avoid confusions with /root .

For further clarity I would expand to something like "Root node" or you can find a better label

"they are in CAPS to be more readable"
CAPS IS MUCH HARDER TO READ than lowercase text.
