I have a few questions. Some things are bothering me, and maybe if I can understand why they are a certain way, I can rest my mind a bit.
In Windows, about 95% of folder and file names make sense. They clearly describe their purpose.
On linux, the official User Manual, states the following:
/sbin: Stores many essential system applications
/etc: Stores System-wide configuration files.
My question is, Why are folder names so
silly / stupid / weird / unrelated to their purpose?
Why would "essential system applications" be placed in a folder named after a thing that is used to hold unwanted things? (bin)
Why would "system-wide configuration files" be stored in a folder called "etc"?
