the file system

I’ve always wanted to figure out the filesystem for linux and mac, and I believe they are very similar. So here it is, in simple terms:

the root is represented by “/”, the forward slash. Then some interesting ones are:

In Linux:

/
home
–duncan
—-Desktop
—-Download
—-Documents
—-Videos
—-workspace
—-Music

In Mac,

/
–Applications
–Developer
–Users
—-duncan
——Documents
——Downloads
——Desktop
——Library
——Movies
