/usr/bin is managed by package managers. You shouldn't normally put
anything there since (a) it can be overwritten with the next package
update and (b) you don't see what is custom-built and what is
installed with packages (this comes in the way when upgrading the
system). /usr/local/bin is better in this sense, but still I prefer
not to put anything there anyway. I put my custom binaries to ~/bin.
I'm on Kubuntu though, not sure if Fedora supports ~/bin.
