    if the wikipedia page is correct, Hans Reiser could be out of prison in 2023, so I imagine he will have a huge numbers of bug fixes to commit.. or should I say bugs to kill?

        That's the problem with one man armies. I remember that ReiserFS was fast, reliable and default in many distros... what a giant waste.

          I have different memories.

            Then it's a good thing there is more than one man working on Reiser file systems.

              x2, a few nasty bugs involving data corruption come to mind. Tried ReiserFS a long time ago, didn't see any compelling reason to use it over the other available filesystems at the time. It was fast in some very specific use cases, but I think ext4 and XFS have caught up. Unless you're running some disk-intensive custom application that benchmarks significantly better on Reiser vs. other FS types, I'm not sure why anyone would use it.
