RE[2]: reiser4 still not in?

Funny... obviously the linux guys think they have all the leverage. I rather think they are wrong.

I think Reiser4 is something so amazing (or at least hyped to be so) that enough people want it, to make it worth treating exceptionally.

I'm actually now at a point where I'm getting progressively irritated with the Linux devs for not doing more to include Reiser4. Mind you, I'm running it under linux with patches... but stil.

Yes, Hans Reiser may not be the pal you want to first call when you have your next play-date coming up... but for heaven's sake grow up. Most people that dislike Hans appear to do so less because he's arrogant, but because he is smarter than them on some topics, and Hans wasn't afraid to say it loud and clear.

Urgh. ;-(

God, just because "it's reiser4" doesn't means they shouldn't address the problems

I won't comment on this...

Ding ding ding ding!!!

Whether or not it really is worthy, the reason "enough people want it" is because of the hype. Most of the users clamoring for it don't know enough to be able to make a good judgement, they are motivated by hype.

Let the kernel devs makes their call. They are a lot more qualified to do so than the folks who keep wondering why it isn't in.

I think there are a lot of pepole who likes Reiser4 because they understand the potential of the new namespace model + plugins system.

I also think that there are an even bigger number people who just can't understand the possibillities of this new platform.

I think just about everybody can see the potential of Reiser 4's model, especially when it comes to things like namespaces.

The sole reason why some devs are fairly hostile to it is because they can see the end of their filesystems - it's about a question of ego. They haven't looked into the future and planned ahead. Hans quite obviously has.
