    Phoronix: Systemd/Microsoft Effort For A Global Counter On Block/Disk Changes Coming To Linux 5.15

    Last month I wrote about a possible global counter for block/disk changes on Linux being discussed by Microsoft and systemd developers to better track changes via a system-wide monotonically increasing number as an alternative to the existing per-disk tracking.

          I wonder if this developer had any experience with the Windows kernel code.
          I would love to read an article by someone with experience with both the Linux kernel and the Windows kernel, and to hear opinions, impressions, preferences, pros/cons, and such.

                    Same man, same. I'm 35, gonna be 36 in September. I haven't watched really in over a decade. But the 90s era with Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man, Undertaker, and those guys and then the Attitude Era in the '2000s with Stone Cold, The Rock, Mankind, etc. Best times. Some of these dudes are still around (Undertaker). incredible. Got lots of respect for wrestlers and wrestling.
