Right.  Also, it's incorrect to call it "Linux" standard.  The FHS is 
derived from the GNU Coding Standards, which is perhaps the oldest 
document describing a uniform layout & installation procedure (and yeah, 
the GNUstep layout doesn't comply with it either).  The Linux kernel 
works fine with non-FHS setup, and Linux developers have no influence on 
the underlying layout at all, naturally.

It is true that the most vocal group behind the FHS were people from 
various GNU/Linux distros, but there were folks from the BSD community, 
too (who insisted on libexecdir, IIRC).  And Sun/SGI/IBM/etc staff as 

It's also a bit FUDdish to claim that Debian is the only distro insisting 
on FHS.  Fedora/Red Hat has the same requirement, as well as all 
derivatives (Ubuntu, CentOS, etc).  So is Mandriva and probably SuSE, if 
I'm not wrong.  In fact, the FHS issues GNUstep had were precisely the 
reason why it was not packaged for Fedora until recently.
