I just ran across this great article on journaling filesystems - http://www.linux-mag.com/2000-08/journaling_01.html. Is anyone out there running a journaling filesystem on Linux?

Been running Reiser for over 3 years ... :}

The article is very concise, but has come
somewhat of age, though, Reiser beats ext2/3
particularly with small files these days.



Cheers,
Tink

Anyway, I have been using journaling filesystems - 3rd extendend and ReiserFS so far - for a couple of years now. Probably since about the time that article was published. Can't live without it! It adds a *ton* of reliability to your system.
