Linux "F2FS is a new file system carefully designed for the NAND flash memory-based storage devices. We chose a log structure file system approach, but we tried to adapt it to the new form of storage. Also we remedy some known issues of the very old log structured file system, such as snowball effect of wandering tree and high cleaning overhead."

Apart from being informed Samsung is working on a new flash friendly file system I'm none the wiser. Why they bothered and how it works...just the basics would be nice , what's the point of news otherwise.
