    I'm sorry, but the name of this FS constantly forces me to invent silly jokes like "dedicated FS for secure pron storage", etc.

          Either that or a contraction of "ErrorFS" (designed for use on old IBM DeathStar drives, presumably)!

            So is this any better than squashfs?

              Exactly my thoughts. What's the point of this FS?

                    Im reminded of the phrase "what good is a new baby". While it might look like a duplication of effort it is how innovation happens.

                    Today is the very first that ive heard of EROFS. So surprise something new! That being said i dont see the draw in readonly file systems. Is that much data really being saved?

                    On the flip side im always happy to see new ideas explored even if i question why. It is a positive aspect of Linux.
