There are plenty of other better file system organization methods but why does linux use these in specific ?


Its entirely dependent on what filesystem you're using. If you're using ext4 then it's because they made it backwards compatible all the way back to ext2. If you want a better system don't blame Linux, just switch to btrfs.
