Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) defines a common arrangement of the many files and directories in Unix-like systems (the filesystem hierarchy) that many different developers and groups have agreed to use. See for more details.

The FHS specification is used by the implementors of Linux distributions and other Unix-like operating systems, application developers, and open-source writers. In addition, many system administrators and users have found it to be a useful resource.

FHS or its predecessor, FSSTND, is currently implemented by most major Linux distributions, including Debian, Red Hat, Caldera, SuSE, and more.
