    Benchmark

    I hope to see it benchmarked vs ext4, zfs, xfs and btrfs.

          I have no problems with a file system bearing the name of a convicted murderer. I do however have a problem with distros named after teenybopper idols.

            reiserfs has always served me well and I understand that hans reiser isn't the only developer but then again I wouldn't eat mansons beans or rent a property from fred west letting agent

            whats in a name? so why not change it? meh just a suggestion

              I'd leave reiserfs alone. It would take far too much effort to rename it.

              Reiser4 needs a rename or a fork if it ever hopes to get into the mainline kernel.

                well to be fair its been renamed from reiserfs to reiser4

                Is hans reiser doing a bird man of alcatraz and actually still working on this?

                like i said i've used reiserfs for a long time .. good performance and very reliable

                  controversial file-system

                  I cannot see anything controversial about it

                  Still about the guy who wrote reiserfs? How about killing people in Irak/Afghanistan/Syria/Bosnia etc.?

                  We should leave politics out of technology...

                      fair point, I suppose naming any project after its author is a little egotistic

                        Egoistic or not, it was his right to name his work however he liked.

                        BTW the same is with Linux and nobody complains.

                        I personally like this name from the beginning, and it's positively distinctive from EXT[2-4] / [A-Z][A-Z]FS names.

                        It's a pity this nice FS has low chances to be mainlined. I use reiser3 and would use 4 if it was mainline.

                          Not quite the same. Linus didn't actually call it Linux. He choose the name Freak. However a friend of his decided to name the ftp folder Linux and the project name became that.

                              Reiser: I hope you die and rot in prison, asshole. I also hope your children never visits you. Die already, you fucking imbecile/asshole.

                              I hope somebody kills you if you ever get out of jail. You fucking piece of shit.

                              its a good filesystem - i'd use it before ext3/4 anyday and reiser wasn't/isn't the only developer but i understand why you and others wouldn't use reiserfs...

                              leaving the name as reiserfs is at the very least shitty marketing
