    Phoronix: F2FS Offers Up New Features For Linux 4.20/5.0

    While Btrfs has been sorting out performance improvements, the crew working on the Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS) have been working on a number of feature additions for this next Linux kernel under development...

    Cool. Is this meant to be used over raw flash (MTD) devices like UBI/UBIFS, or is it meant to be used over block devices like any other file system?

      It's designed to be used on NAND based devices *with* FTL layer on top of that (which makes them look like block devices). That includes e.g. SSD drives.

        I'm still wondering each time I re-install if I should go with F2FS or EXT4, both in term of performance and lifetime. F2FS is built for SSD drives, so a dedicated solution should be better than a generic one. But it is young and not very used when in the other hand, EXT4 is mature and way more bug proof. So I kept EXT4 until now, but each new kernel brings that question back.
