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.

What about ext3 ?
by Thierry on Wed 29th Aug 2001 14:00 UTC

Maybe my question is a bit ( or a lot ) na´ve, but what about ext3 ? Not a word in the whole article, except a short one by Hans Reiser, and the "unamed mention", which seems to come more from the cold war between Suse and Red Hat than from a technically argued discussion... About the benchmark, I thought (still na´ve, no ?) that a reliable benchmark had to come from a non-implied third-party. This doesn't mean to be a troll start or a sterile flame war, but I'm still searching for an objective comparison, to make a choice as much judicious as possible for production boxes. So what ?
