    So then Reiser4/Reiser5 or whatever the follow-on was called died out?

    I still fail to understand why this wasn't simply renamed. Or, if they just kept it around for legacy compatibility, why so long? Whatever features this FS had back when it was new are obsolete.

    I'm surprised to read that ReiserFS was still somewhat supported until now. It quickly went downhill due to the murder and the availability of better options, and has been basically unmaintained for quite a while now both in the kernel and userspace.

    Less has always been more. (Let's make textconsole great again.)

    Or a Douglas Adams fan.

Also, XFS specifically has smaller featureset than ReiserFS unless you use it with LVM on top which is less optimal due to the added layer of abstraction. XFS is better at handling large files which is not a general use case for desktop computing.

    That immediate action is for the rolling-release openSUSE Tumbleweed while on the openSUSE Leap / SUSE Linux Enterprise side obviously it's not likely to see any changes until their next major releases down the line.
    Support for ReiserFS in openSUSE Leap was deleted since 15.3: https://doc.opensuse.org/release-not...ved-deprecated
    Leap installer has no option for using ReiserFS in about 5 last years.

    Default FS for openSUSE is BTRFS-only since ~2014 (openSUSE 13.2). Installer needs manual changes to get XFS/ext3/ext4 FS.

    In an excellent example of the brain reading what it expects to see, I usually read that username as the character from HHGTTG.
