    Reiser4 Still Lacks Mainline Ambitions

    Phoronix: Reiser4 Still Lacks Mainline Ambitions

    Reiser4 is still not ready for integration into the Linux 3.3 kernel nor has the file-system even been officially updated yet for any of the recent kernel releases...

    I don't think he is so much a fan of Reiser as a hater of women, and since Reiser did something awful to a woman Mikee supports him.

    I'm glad that Hans Reiser killed, murdered in fact, Nina Reiser.
    He should have also fought the people that think he did wrong.

    I hope if he ever gets out he takes action against those in the tech community that hate him or abandoned him (ie: good, feminist, men)

    Big deal, Moses had people killed for gathering firewood on the wrong day of the week.

    If you people didn't jail reiser for doing the correct and moral thing of killing the adulterous woman, Nina Reiser, than maybe we'd have the file-as-directory feature.

    But you and your woman / goodperson's society gleefully threw away a useful man for the sake of whores.

    What Would Moses have Done?
    Killed her.
    Maybe go get a young young female aswell.

    The former isn't particularly useful, easier implementation of this would be to extend nautilus, which already has the ability to display file metadata -- just needs to be modified to ALTER that metadata, which is a fairly simple task.

    The latter can be accomplished by switching to a database instead of using /etc/passwd. I can't see any particularly compelling reason to build your filesystem around a specific file.
    The entire point of doing all this in the filesystem was to be able to access and manipulate metadata with standard unix tools - anything that understands files and directories. Instead of metadata being application-specific it would be universal. Obviously the /etc/passwd example was not the only possible use for that feature.

    The only thing that interests me about Reiser4 are the things that were promised but never happened: accessing files as directories and using this interface as a standard way of managing metadata, putting different permissions on each line/field of /etc/passwd, all the stuff that was in the "future vision" whitepaper.

    Without those features what makes Reiser4 more compelling than Btrfs?
