        It seems to me that every phoronix article thread start with trolling lately.

            I'm not sure.

            I'll have to think about it.

              It's awesome for simple FLASH media without controller that would take care about the FLASH cell peculiarities.

              Which means for SD cards, USB sticks etc. I use it on removable media instead of vfat. And when GRUB2 learns to boot from it, it willl be on USB stick with boot partition on my machines, too.

                I've always wondered what kind of FS this is. Is it for simple things like USB sticks and memory cards? Or for the flash based mass storage of the future?

                  I've been using it for Debian installations on DreamPlugs and ALIX boards where the root FS is on SD card so that I can benefit from journalling while minimising wear. Works for me.
