It’s so u can have a folder for ur own binaries w/out being admin

Everyone knows that the correct location is ~/.local/bin/

FreeBSD uses ~/bin/ which proves it’s correct

FreeBSD also uses a serial init system which is horribly slow. Is that correct?

I don’t know but it boots faster than my Linux system…

As others have said it’s so the user can place their own executables on the PATH. Ubuntu supports this too, if you look in ~/.profile you will find this snippet

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then
    PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"
fi

I believe the current convention is to use ~/.local/bin for this purpose, and ~/bin is an older convention.

And there is no binary inside that folder

That folder is on the $PATH, so you can place an executable/script into there (or symlink to an executable), and then you can directly run that executable from your shell, with just the file name as the command name (not anymore the whole path).

There is already .local/bin for that purpose.

That’s not standardized across distros…
