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 GFS?

The UMN/sistina GPLed GFS is a journalling filesystem that runs on regular old linux systems. With additional help, it also runs as a filesystem shared between multiple systems, but that isn't necessary. It seems to be left out of all these FS comparisons unfairly, IMO. -dB
