    I noticed and IBM cannot even agree internally 8)

    "Tivoli Storage Manager Journal Based Backup troubleshooting techniques
    and solutions to common problems seen with journalized backups and the
    journal database. This is from a 2005_November_07 Support Technical
    Exchange Web seminar presented by TSM Support staff"

    "IBM Journaled File System (JFS)"

    Mandrake use Journalized File System in various press articles. Mac
    people seem to like journalized too and google shows it used in various
    reviews and articles.

    I think I'm going to follow this up with the professional bodies and see
    if there is an opinion because either the computing world needs to agree
    on a proper English name, or they need to agree on a new one and talk to
    the dictionary people about it.
