Even though the technology would still be around even if Hans isn't, there has been a lot of pain trying to get reiserfs to continue to work well in the kernel tree from release to release. It's very tempermental, so I don't know if it will last much longer, especially given the slew of existing file systems that don't need such work to maintain. ext4 is being previewed in Fedora 9 this month, so add one more to the list. I heard the Reiser FS is going to be replaced with the Peterson FS ;-) -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
