    im baffled by all this. So, was this Reiser guy basically framed for a crime he didnt commit? Who killed his wife then?

    Hans killed her and his crappy FS killed two of my HTPCs in the past.

    Is the truht what really happened or just what we believe truth is?

    I'm happy with ReiserFS, JFS and in future Btrfs

    Yes it is really true.

    You don't even have to know C that well to understand the small but deliberate changes (ie sabotage) to the source code that led to Reiser4 destroying its filesystem.

    The sabotage to Reiser4 was really very obvious.

    I meant that truth is not what really happens, but what we believe happens... this means that hans reiser could be or not be the murderer of his wife.. but it doesn't matter much, since he has been convicted. You cannot change this.

    Knowing C may help me distinguish "sabotage" from "bug fixing", what you are not trying to do!

    Remember that if "something works" it doesn't mean "it's right"!

    Maybe reiser did mistakes writing the code; everybody (even the best programmers) make them! So, even if something works in some cases it may not work in all the cases. A better implementation could be even different.
    Except if you really know what every single line of code of Reiser4 does, you should not base your sabotage theories on "lines swapped".

    Ok, there may be breakage between the two different implementations, but Reiser4 is not in feature freeze! so breakage is likely to happen and you are advised that this could be dangerous for your data.

    Knowing C MAY help you, but it clearly hasn't.

    The sabotage is so obvious that a blind man could see it.

    This is also of interest to this thread:

    So Ext4, which is less stable and has less features than Reiser4, is in the kernel while Reiser4 is not.

    What weird CONSPIRACY is this?
