Is there a Windows and Apple/Mac equivalent of Linux's FHS?


I've researched this and have found it difficult to determine whether or not there is a clear equivalent of the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) used in Linux on Windows and Apple/Mac. Any ideas?

MacOS/X is based on a variant of BSD called Darwin, so I'm sure it has a *quite* similar hierarchy.

Windows, not really, only a few vague parallels. I found the post by AwesomeMachine in this thread useful:
