I don't share your interpretation of "add-on". But I don't want to
continue argueing about FHS and it interpretation.
- From an sysadmin point of view it is realy nice to have MOST of the
programms and the mayority of diskspace under /usr. I think many
networks are planed that way. Shure one could just link /opt to
/usr/opt and everything work, but then lets just start with
I also wouldn't mind /usr/kde /usr/gnome ... if that makes live
easier for developers and package maintainers.
It think /usr/games is sensless, but /usr/X11R6 is good to be there.
Just my 2 cents
