Original OSNews Interviews The days of the plain filesystems like FAT32 and ext2 seem to have past. Newer operating systems are offering journal, 64-bit filesystems, with features like supporting terrabytes of filesizes or attaching attributed meta-data in them. Today we are interviewing (in a given set of questions) the main people behind IBM's JFS, NameSys' ReiserFS and SGI's XFS. Read on about the status of their filesystems, their abilities and what they are aiming for the future.

JFS on OS/2 was VERY Bad
by David D. Huff Jr. on Wed 29th Aug 2001 04:15 UTC

All along I had been told that the Linux JFS was an AIX port. Now that is really bad having used JFS since OS/2 WSeB was in beta until last year I can tell you it is really bad. Their optimizer takes way too long and the manual checkdisk forget it, can take hours on a 10 gig. If you ever get the message "cannot find M:" I pray you don't have a gun nearby.
