/proc vs /sys
 
Hi :)
I want to know what's the main difference between /proc and /sys ?
I do know that /proc contains information about the system (e.x uptime,cpu, os,processes)
but i cant figure out what's the difference between /sys and /proc

/proc was declared (just look at it) bad, its a mess really, esp for programs to sparse, as i hear. /sys (sysfs) was designed to be organized, and easier for programs to look at.

In any case, as i hear it, there is a move to cut out /proc in the future, in favor of /sys.

So theres really no difference besides one being around for a long time, and a newer one was made to correct problems with the old one
