Linux Filesystem of the Year


A new category last year that ended up with fairly lopsided results. Based on feedback it may be rotated out next year.

Went with btrfs here, even though I also use Ext4, I made great experience with btrfs and it supports Snapper backups, which is another plus for me, being on openSUSE.

You should. I am aware of the fact, that it had received some bad reviews in the past, but I had absolutely no problems with it. Basically I decided to give it ago, since I use openSUSE, which comes with Snapper for backups and Snapper requires Btrfs. I have however my /home formatted in Ext4, since I don't need it snapshot.

Not noticing any performance increase, but Btrfs appears pretty robust and performing well for like one year now.

I voted XFS because at work have several NAS over 16 TB
ZFS i great too but RAIDZ is not growable as easy as growing RAID with mdadm tools.

Reiser4 is the most recent release and has been included in the category from the beginning.

ReiserFS (which is Reiser3) is quite a bit different than Reiser4 isn't it?

ext4. Would like to try XFS on my ssds, can't get it to boot through. Probably just me I'm guessing.

Formated my HDD with LUKS encrypted Btrfs. Used it for months, since I had not the time to change it, but I never had such a slow system in my life before.

Came back to ext4, which in my search is actually the fastest filesystem nowadays, and became a happy Linux user again!
