    Phoronix: Reiser5 File-System In Development - Adds Local Volumes With Parallel Scaling Out

    Well, this is a hell of a way to surprisingly end the 2010s... Reiser5. Reiser5 brings a new format to the Reiser file-system and brings some new innovations to this file-system while keeping to its controversial name...

    Blast from the past?

        Shishkin5? Pro-tip: Please never use a surname or name again, Linux is an accidental exception.

          You mean like My, or Maria? Monty obviously disagrees.

              well, that is certainly unexpected - new filesystem innovations are always interesting and welcome - Let's see how it works out!

                From the future rather. The second decade of 21st century ends in a year, not now.

                  I will note that Shishkin appears to state that there are patents on some of the algorithms in Reiser5. Will those patents be placed under the OIN umbrella?

                  In any case, without some corporate support and sponsorship, it seems unlikely that any new file systems is going to get accepted into the mainline kernel (no matter what the name).

                    People look at you strange if you point out 2020 is the last year of the second decade of the 21st C. Same as if pointing out 2000 is the last year of the 20th C. People are idiots.
