Linux While Ext4 was originally merged in 2.6.19, it was marked as a development filesystem. It has been a long time coming but as planned, Ext4dev has been renamed to Ext4 in 2.6.28 to indicate its level of maturity and paving the way for production level deployments. Ext4 filesystem developer Ted Tso also endorsed Btrfs as a multi-vendor, next generation filesystem and along with the interest from Andrew Morton, Btrfs is planned to be merged before 2.6.29 is released. It will follow a similar development process to Ext4 and be initially marked as development only.

Let's wait and see ;)

I start to trust a filesystem when someone is daring to deploy the mailservers of a large organisation on it. Many files, many accesses and a fierce lynch mob in front of the admins office in case of a data loss.

And when the same mailserver runs on the same filesystem half a year later, you can call it "acceptable" ... after a year or so you can start to call it "awesome" ;)

That's why all my contracts include a provision for a trap door and secret passage from the server room. Keeping one's passport current is also prudent.
