    Phoronix: Apple Designs New File-System To Succeed HFS+

    With WWDC happening this week, in addition to the macOS Sierra and iOS 10 news, there's also a bit of low-level tech of interest to us: Apple File-System...

    I think you got the acronym wrong. It should read AFTFS. (About F***ing Time! File System)

    Seriously though, HFS+ is an awful file system that can't die quick enough.

          Let's see if it can beat ReFS to the punch. It probably can...

            And there dies what little compatibility with OSX Linux had. It's bad enough trying to dual boot using the kernel's HFS+ support (no journaling support, doesn't support all the new crypto stuff etc). It would be nice if for once Apple didn't try to wall their garden but I guess that's just wishful thinking. I don't think I'll be buying another Mac. The hardware's really nice, but it's just painful to use the way I need it.

              It'd be great if someone could develop one of these great filesystems with a permissive licence, so everyone could use the same one.

                "It will be interesting to see if APFS is open-source or not"

                  It would be great if someone would release an open source filesystem that could be freely used by others so long as their modifications remain open for the sake of user security... oh... wait.

                    Which is only Apple's fault. If they respected their users, they would use the same licenses.
