    /bin contains all the essential binaries file that can be execute by local and other users
    /sbin contains system files like useradd that can be exeute by root
    local user has to use sudo to run these
    /usr/bin , /usr/sbin contains non essential binaries e.g. office tools etc
    these are parted to minimize size of root
