    If you read my post again, you might realize, you are the only one doing comparisons here. I gave an extreme example of why naming sometimes may evoke a negative feeling in people, as you apparently had trouble sympathizing with that. If you read to the end, I apologized for trying to go to that extreme. I am not even sure it worked...

    Again, you failed to read and understand. The difference in their crime is of course obvious. But thank you for repeating it for us - lest we should forget.

    I believe you are wrong. It is quite normal that common murderers legacy is attempted diminished in respect and sympathy for the victims and their relatives. Nobody before you, talked about banning names in general.

    You are entitled to have your own opinions. However, from all your swearing and putting up straw men, it seems like you have trouble respecting that people may have opinions that differ from yours.

    Heck, it could even had been interesting to find out, where exactly on the spectrum "common murderer" - "full genocide", it would be appropriate to rename a file system. But now we will never know

    Goodbye!

    As I said the last thread you posted the same, this is bullshit, Reiser didn't commit a big enough crime to warrant that.

    if it was named Hitlerwagen
    Hitler was responsible of genocide and war crimes. Reiser is just a common murderer. If we rule out all the names of common murders we run out of names in months.

    However twisting and turning other peoples arguments is just plain trolling.

    I can understand that FOR YOU it's the same level of bad because you don't have grasp on reality or something, but I want you to understand that FOR MOST OTHER PEOPLE it isn't.

    No shit, Sherlock!

    Dear starshipeleven. Just a little tip, if you should ever want to have an adult and civilized discussion with anyone:
    1. Read/Listen what people say and try to understand instead of jumping to quick conclusions.
    2. Stop putting words in other peoples mouths and putting up straw men to impose fake attitudes to other people.
    What I wrote, was that the developers should have the decency to change the *name* of the file system (no matter its technical merits).

    Just for the record, I own a Volkswagen car, and it is IMHO a mighty fine car. However, I will tell you with a straight face, that if it was named Hitlerwagen and they had kept the original swastika logo, I would not have touched the car with a ten foot pole - no matter its technical capabilities. Apparently some people in here don't care about something so mundane as the naming of stuff and what connotations it carries. That I can somewhat respect, even though I find it to be lack of thought or taste.

    However twisting and turning other peoples arguments is just plain trolling.

    PS. Sorry for going full Godwin - apparently things have to be bent in neon.

    And that is of course your right to do that. Thank you for answering my question

    If the file system is ever to be judged by its technical merits alone, the remaining developers should at least have the common sense to rename it to something else...
    Otherwise it is best left forgotten.
    Again with this crap?

    The main reason none is using Reiser4 is because other filesystems have catched up years ago.

    who? maybe anyone who actually can separate the technical capabilities of a product from the morality of the ppl who made it? I think that's quite a normal, and functional way to live in society. I'd use CheGuevaraFS if it was faster and less buggy than btrfs.

    I loved reiser 3, but we had so many corruption problems and lockups with reiser4, it has the same state as btrfs here: "might be very good, but past experiences are hard to forget". So we moved to ext3.
    To be honest: jfs, xfs, reiser4 and btrfs all gave me bad memories. Bugs in ext4 only lead to lock-ups, never to data loss or data corruption in my experiences.
