How My Work Directory is Organized

It took me many years to figure out how to organize the directory structure on my harddisk. Even after decades in the IT industrie most people use their desktop (~/Desktop) as a temporary directory. Why not ~/tmp?

This is a post about how my ~/work directory and others are organized.

My Dropbox is similar organized. There is also a ~/Dropbox/tmp directory to sync temporary files. I still have issues organizing Dropbox in a perfect manner.

For years I also kept a ~/Software directory. In the long-run it’s too expensive to keep it. Only for storing license keys, but not to keep the installers and binary files.
