A discussion including ext3, ext4, zfs, btrfs, and xfs


Every computer uses some kind of file system to manage its storage
systems, whether that be hard disks SSD, or USB stick. The Linux EXT
family of file systems is over 10 years old and is getting a big long in
the tooth. My focus is primarily the end user because the end user just
wants his/her system to work reliably and efficiently. We want our
documents and pictures to be in tact when we write them and for the
forseeable future. It is the file system that manages all this.

For further information and directions please consult the BLU Web site
Please note that there is usually plenty of free parking in the E-51
