8 I'm in favour of /bin and /lib, and I see the pros and cons of /sbin and
9 am not too bothered about how that is done. But having two (or more) of
10 each of these is an artificial mess that is a solution to a problem that
11 ceased to exist decades ago.

27 Red Hat employ devs working on many aspects of Linux, and we should be
28 grateful for this (or do you prefer the Ubuntu approach of taking with
29 little giving back?). One of the reasons Greg K-H left SUSE to work for
30 the Linux Foundation was so that he could be completely
31 distro-independent. AFAIK he has never worked for Red Hat.
