Design of GoboLinux is revolutionary even though based on Linux Kernel.
I am glad they are working on version 16.
Version 15 available at torrent (be a seeder) which I down loaded yesterday.
16 version is alpha and availalbe at point to point download; Please test it and report any mishaps.
Thank you guys and girls at GoBoLinx.

The GoboLinux hierarchy represents a radical departure from the filesystem hierarchy traditionally employed by most UNIX-like operating systems where specific types of files are stored together in common standard subdirectories (such as /bin for executables and /etc for configuration files) and where package managers are used to keep track of what file belongs to which program. In GoboLinux, files from each program are placed under their respective program's own dedicated subdirectory. The makers of GoboLinux have said that "the filesystem is the package manager", and the GoboLinux package system uses the filesystem itself as a package database. This is said to produce a more straightforward, less cluttered directory tree. GoboLinux uses symlinks and an optional kernel module called GoboHide to achieve all this while maintaining full compatibility with the traditional Linux filesystem hierarchy.
The creators of GoboLinux have stated that their design has other "modernisms", such as the removal of some distinctions between similar traditional directories (such as the locations of executables /bin, /usr/bin, and /usr/local/bin). GoboLinux designers have claimed that this results in shell scripts breaking less often than with other Linux distributions. GoboLinux also allows the user to have different versions of the same program installed concurrently (and even run them concurrently). Furthermore, it has been claimed that the package management index could never become unsynchronized with the filesystem, because references to nonexistent files simply become broken links, and thus become inactive. GoboLinux's filesystem changes also allow other innovations, such as an entirely new boot system that does not use System V or BSD style init systems.

Saying Good Bye to OLD Hard Disks

Saying Good Bye to OLD Hard Disks

If you want to buy an external hard drive, my advice is wait a bit, the prices will come down drastically when the market is saturated.
Wait for SSDs.
In my case all my little videos, photos and all my pdf books can be put in a 32 GiB Smart Slim Card.

Why by Mega Disk?
Power cords and casing are extras.

I have over nearly 20 hard disks of various sizes and shapes loaded with over 500 Linux distributions and I use the
Lightest distribution for my work.
I wanted to build an archive (fearing nobody will store them in the cloud) and the Smart Phones and Andoids spoilt the soup.
As far as Android is concerned it has big security HOLES, especially the Wireless Protocols.

So do not retire the WIRED connection till YOU die.
It is the fastest and the safest, if you use Linux TOR.
Fireroptic does not serve YOU well if your computer's RAM is only 1 GiB.
8 GiB is my recommendation it is roughly Rs.1000/= for I GiB.
I use the cloud for storage which is probably a smarter choice.
The technology is pacing at fast rate and we are getting old very fast.
So saying Good Bye to Linux, Internet and assortment of Emails are on the card and in the distant horizon.
