    There is any place yet for XFS given the competition of "modern" cows filesystem?

    All that I read about XFS says: solid, classic.

        It's going to become CoW as well in a few years. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...n-Write-Better

        plus it already supports reflinks (again like Btrfs), which allows to deduplicate it online with tools like duperemove.

        It's actually under quite a bit of development, unlike ext4, where development of "next gen filesystem" features does not happen.

          XFS - My favourite high performance, bullet proof filesystem of choice from hard drives to modern PCIE 4.0 NMVe drives. It's just always so quick and stable and doesn't waste space like EXT4 and is consistently fast no buffer flushing etc when I spam them with updates like EXT4, exFat do. F2FS is nice but XFS is awesome.
          ZFS - My 2nd favourite and purely due to it's stability and snapshots. On my servers, anything else it's XFS.

            ext4 root space allocation can be disabled to reclaim the space
            Code:
            tune2fs -m 0 /dev/sda1
            the "0" is the percent of space you want to reserve for root. In this case 0% to remove the limit.
