Linux 101: Directory Structure

Linux file structure

Also to clear up /bin vs /sbin:

  • /sbin – Files needed for bootup/recovery that are only used by superuser (e.g., fsck)
  • /bin – Files needed for bootup/recovery that are used by all users (e.g., bash)
  • /usr/sbin – Files used only by superuser that aren’t required for recovery/bootup (generally dynamically linked) (e.g., ntpdate)
  • /usr/bin – Files used by everybody that aren’t required for bootup/recovery

Now if you want your linux world turned up-side-down, checkout GoboLinux.
