Linux While Ext4 was originally merged in 2.6.19, it was marked as a development filesystem. It has been a long time coming but as planned, Ext4dev has been renamed to Ext4 in 2.6.28 to indicate its level of maturity and paving the way for production level deployments. Ext4 filesystem developer Ted Tso also endorsed Btrfs as a multi-vendor, next generation filesystem and along with the interest from Andrew Morton, Btrfs is planned to be merged before 2.6.29 is released. It will follow a similar development process to Ext4 and be initially marked as development only.

fs-driver for windows

When I install a dual boot system I like to have a partition for storing data, music, pictures, movies etc...that can be accessible by both OS's. With the driver from fs-driver.org I can use an ext2 or ext3 from within Windows. Will this work with ext4?
