Thoughts on ReiserFS

I recently watched a video of Hans Reiser’s presentation on ReiserFS, a journalling filesystem. It piqued my curiosity, so I visited the ReiserFS website to read more about the filesystem. I ended up un-learning some things I thought I knew, and had some thoughts to share on ReiserFS in general.

ReiserFS has a lot of implications not only for ordinary file-storage, but for special purpose systems too. It’ll be interesting to see what the next few years bring.
