    I feel you. Why is there no standardized way if dealing with this?

    @Jilano I think the /opt directory is a good example

    Just barely fits the screen XD

    Also I think that the idea of files and directories being used interchangeably in dotfiles is because some configurations use multiple files so a dedicated directory makes more sense, and others use just one .${application}rc file, so a file makes more sense. That is, if they're done properly of course..

    @Jilano nah, it’s actually pretty much the only reasonable standard. Configs should go in XDG_CONFIG_HOME. Period.

    At least it is better than the mess that is the windows 10 directory's structure

    They should put it in a config folder or dot_files folder in Home directory

    @Spark "What do you mean? Programs only get installed in Program files, or Program files (x86), or Appdata/roaming, or Appdata/locale, or Program Data, or any fucking arbitrary folder in the entire system."

    @Jilano or all the statically linked system32 for 64 bit stuff and the other thing wow64 for 32 bit stuff. It all makes sense
