    What's their main reason to make a new filesystem, instead of improving Btrfs or ZFS?

      My guess is Brtfs is still miss very important features(from the enterprise PoV) and ZFS may be a legal minefield with Oracle, hence I think is a ZFS like with some interesting BTRFS features filesystem without the legal drama from Oracle(men, I loved SUN back in the day but I hate they sold the company to Oracle because Oracle suck ass)

        There's your problem. If you haven't used NetworkManager for years, then you're not objective enough to say anything about it.

          I noticed you left out Red Hat's large involvement with XFS, one of the most stable file systems you'll find....
          I'm pretty sure that trollxfce has found a way to make even XFS unstable.

            Menulibre works fine. It would be nice to have an integrated solution though.

              Not Invented Here.

              Plus I guess RH wants total control over the direction in which their filesystem is developed.

                They are not writing a new filesystem at all. Stratis will use XFS.

                  They're not making a new FS.

                    from the stratis doc
                    Unfortunately, existing VMFs aren’t easily used on RHEL. ZFS isn’t an option RHEL can embrace due to licensing (Ubuntu notwithstanding.) Btrfs has no licensing issues, but after many years of work it still has significant technical issues that may never be resolved.
                    Also if you read more you find out it is not a new filesystem but a layer that uses lvm,xfs,etc to achieve the same things offered by btrfs/zfs

                      I agree 100%, Red Hat is a fascist corporate entity.

                      North Korea is a democratic people's republic though. Super delegates that rig elections are illegal in North Korea. So God bless them for standing up to the economic terrorists. Poverty kills more people than guns.
