Merits of the different journaling filesystems
Author: JT Smith
Slashdot hosts a discussion of different Linux journaling filesystems. "... SuSE/Namesys's reiserfs, SGI's XFS, IBM's JFS and Tweedie/Redhat's ext3fs. Avoiding the obvious question of why can't the effort going into four different projects be channeled into one, I think a discussion of the particular merits of the different fs's would be interesting."
