    Phoronix: OS/2 HPFS File-System Now Has TRIM Support On Linux

    The High Performance File-System (HPFS) that was originally designed for the OS/2 operating system now has SSD TRIM support for its Linux kernel support while reading/writing from these old partitions...

    Oh hell yeah, I totally forgot about HPFS. Back in the days when NT3.5 was in release it had the ability to install on HPFS. In fact OS2 Warp is still in use today by Point Of Sale and cash register terminals. Short of disk failures I've never really had problems with corrupted files or with moving files from it. To be honest I don't see them very often myself though, because they are often tied to strict support contracts.

        Wow, pretty weird. Not sure anyone will ever actually use that. OS/2 sure, but this is in the Linux Kernel.

          Somewhat off topic... it was my understating that the jfs variant that some use in Linux was a offshoot of the jfs done for OS/2 vs jfs (and future jfs2) on AIX. I guess my question is... was there ever a jfs option for OS/2? Do I sort of have my facts straight? People in the know feel free to educate/correct.... thx.
