I have no idea how UFS works, and no
intention of gathering information on that
account :) ... Try to google for comparisons.
and if someone can answer this I have another
question... WHEN IS Reiser4 COMING OUT!?
You'll need to either find that on the unprofessional
website, or ask the developers in an e-Mail. I doubt
they hang out here to answer that question.
Would you recommend ReiserFS for long-term storage?
I would recommend Reiser for ANY kind of storage, have
been using it (pretty much exclusively) for several years
(since back in the days when one had to patch it into 2.2)
now, and never encountered any data loss or other problems.
It's strength in comparison to ext2 and ext3 is speed
(particularly in random access with small files) and
the way the journaling is handled. :}
