    Reiser lesson

    Looks like the just high priests of the kernel have NOT excommunicated Reiser and his evil works.

    Seriously!
    If you have a mature need. Get a wife like Reiser did. Perversion is doing away with one.
    If you have a belief need. Do better than Reiser. Kernel file-system is bad religion.

    Do us the favor of approaching subjects like science, engineering and software right.
    Have not your basic human needs such as morals and gratifications inappropriately involved in them, by having your beliefs and affections unrelated, like in Jesus.
    That you may not have a distorted understanding and a bad outcome like Reiser. Who seems to believe in his own superior problem solving ability and accomplishments.

    Take as an example the current scandalous science of Global Warming. Scientists distort information for the science they believe in.
    I think Global Warming is real, but many beliefs are wrong.

    so he killed his wife. And that makes reiser4 a bad fs?

    Do you refuse to eat vegetables? Corn? wheat? Because Haber also was big in gas making in WW1. What about TV? Satelites are brought into the sky by rockets. All modern rockets are decendants of the V2 - and Braun was directly responsible for 10 thousands of deaths.

    Go back to the technical merits. Reiser4 is fast. Reiser4 reduces head movement on harddisks. Reiser4 puts data safety first.

    Unlike ext3/4 or xfs.

    I can not make a link about what all these have to do with the filesystem though

    Well, he didn't make enough afterwards either (http://cbs5.com/crime/hans.reiser.at....905257.html):

    Corrections Lt. Sam Robinson said that Hans Reiser suffered some cuts and bruises after he was jumped by several inmates on their way back to their cells after a morning meal.

    Reiser was checked out and treated for his injuries. The prison has put him in a special cell, isolated from the general population as a precaution.

    and for those who wish to believe is innocent

    But in a plea deal, he was sentenced for second-degree murder after leading authorities to his wife's remains, which were buried in the Oakland Hills.

    The deal spared Reiser the death penalty but prosecutors said he will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.

    Where is that bulldozer farm?

    the extX devs should have never started with ex4 and instead either helped Edward or with butterfs.
    great news !

    so two experts of reiserfs v3.6 and Reiser4 are working on butterfs ?

    so it's definitely going to be the next big thing


    there's (still a lot of) stuff other filesystems can learn from Reiser4: transparent work in the background (e.g. during flushing [and compressing data] to disk you can still work with your system without interruptions), ...

    You know what really happened? Bill Gates had her killed. Seriously. If Linux had such an advanced file system it would shut Windows down today. They didn't want give Riser immortality by making him a martyr so they framed him to discredit him and his work. They then coerced a confession out of him by holding his kids hostage. Follow the money. A few hundred thousand to frame some Joe for murder vs the millions required for patent litigation against Linux. Easy choice. Did you know if you fold a twenty dollar bill just right you can see the chair that was removed from his car? This can't be coincidence.
    Dude, you're awesome . Gave me a good laugh.

    Anyways, my thoughts on Reiser4 is, go ahead and bring it into the kernel if its stable. I heard it wasn't stable and had issues a couple years back when it was new, maybe things have changed. If so it deserves to be in the kernel as it can be a quality file system under those conditions I'm sure.

    Energyman, I'll have to give Reiser4 another go sometime.. But i'm still going strong
    with reiser3.My mobo has been failing this last month and giving instantaneous
    reboots (I've isolated the problem) but reiser3 hasn't had a hiccup. It's great,
    and hard to leave it behind for the unknown that is reiser4.

    And I don't normally flame, but.. about this post.

    To the people suggesting new names - Sorry but you're slightly id**ts.
    It's Reiserfs and no bulldozer will change it. No offence really ;>

    Imho it's fairly obvious Reiser4 will never be in the kernel. Hans murdered his wife
    AND he didn't make many friends before-hand either. Imagine the bad PR for linux if it was included.

    And strike three... Phoronix is blatantly cooking up controversial stories for it's
    own coverage. I'd forgiven you about all the times you've been wrong about new Linux major game releases,
    but this story is the bees knees. Slow/No news day ?

    I am usung reiser4 for root, var and home, compression turned on.

    I have the portage tree in /var.
    /dev/md2 36G 13G 23G 36% /var

    A few days ago, 16gb were full.

    I removed 8gb of uncompressed stuff

    ....

    it also works around missing barriers - because unlike ext4 reiser4 cares about your data.
    I have been using Reiser4 for about 2 years on my laptop, and I am very satisfied with the performance of Reiser4.
    Can compress the data stored on the disk. Effectively doubling the storage on the hard-drive, doubles the speed of reading and writing, gives a more responsive system, causes less wear of hard-drive and conserves power. Can also encrypt data transparently.

    This is why I originally tried Reiser4, It is the only filesystem, that provides such solutions.

    I would recommend Reiser4 using the cryptcompress plugin for transparent compression based on my experience, but http://lwn.net/Articles/226251/ is warning, that the feature is experimental!
