Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris It seems like we're really on the subject of filesystems and related technology the past few days. We had an interview with the man behind BeServed, an item on WinFS' current status, and now we - possibly - have news on ZFS coming to Linux. Possibly, because it's all speculation from here on out.

Better?

Well, All i would really care to know is this.
is it better, performance wise, than ReiserFS?
I use ReiserFS on several machines, because it is more stable than any of the others ones out there it seems, especially more so that ext2 and 3, and Linux defaults to them for some horrible reason.

try doing ReiserFS on an older PC VS ext3 on the same PC, ReiserFS is faster and more stable.

anyway, IS it, or will it be, better than ReiserFS? that is what i would like to know.


and no, just because a guy killed some one does not mean that i will stop using his code. if it works well, then why swap?

It doesn't use less resources, so no, it isn't "better" in the sense that MSDOS is "better" than any of those fancy modern OSes. ;)

It is better in the sense that it has *wicked* features and is more reliable.
