why no defragmentation in linux
So I read on the Internet that it is not necessary to defragment a Linux system. I have been using windows now for a while and the whole idea of fragmentation makes plenty of sense to me. What doesn't make sense is how the file systems on linux get by without this. In Windows if you don't defragment every week or so your computer starts to get really sluggish. Can someone point me to an article about this, I have tried searching the web (google, a9.com) but to no avail. Thanks for the help.
