I was very pro-JFS... until I lost 10gig of very important data, and
back then (2002) there was no way to recover a JFS volume (the data
was in RAID, but some corruption ocurred and I lost the whole drive, I
mean, I ended up with a blank root).

Back in 2004 I asked one of the IBMers at the JFS team about it and he
had this to say:

"IBM will continue to invest in jfs as long as we feel that our customers get
value from it."

Q: Will JFS be enhanced eventually with features from ReiserFS 4? (can it
be done without a complete rewrite?).

"Possibly some.  Samba has been asking for streams support for a while,
and if reiser4 leads the way in an implementation that does not break
unix file semantics, jfs (and possibly other file systems) may follow."


Dunno if IBM did much to JFS after that... haven´t been following
their work wrt JFS...
