- Based on the first paragraph from linfo as quoted below, one can conclude that root file system is actually the partition's file system where Linux is installed.
The root filesystem is the filesystem that is contained on the same partition on which the root directory is located, and it is the filesystem on which all the other filesystems are mounted (i.e., logically attached to the system) as the system is booted up (i.e., started up).
- If I understand file system in general correctly, it is a method of mapping/organizing the data like files in cabinets. In that sense, then directory hierarchy is the result of that.
Are the statements above true?
