Not at all.  OPENSTEP on the left, Mac on the right:

/NextApps       /Applications
/NextAdmin      (/Applications/Utilities, /System/Library/CoreServices, /
/NextLibrary    /System/Library
/NextDeveloper  /Developer
/LocalApps      /Applications
/LocalAdmin     /Applications
/LocalLibrary   /Library

I think the User and Network domains had the same layout, but maybe
OPENSTEP had Apps instead of Applications in each.  The change
started after Rhapsody DR2 and before Mac OS X Server 1.0, but I
think the eventual layout didn't settle down until the OS X DPs.


So in the Mac there's no such thing as a Local domain?  I guess I can see why from a usability stand point.

Also, if that's the OPENSTEP layout, Sergii's layout looks nothing like it.  I guess you could do GNUApps, GNULibrary, etc since the Next prefix seems to go against GNUstep's name.
