    SubjectTux3 Report: Tux3 Debut at SCALE 7x
    On Sunday, Tux3 was presented at SCALE 7x in Los Angeles:

    Slides from the presentation are here:

    Audio will be available later (eek!).

    The presentation was given on a ten year old Vaio laptop running
    a completely modern Debian Sid, with XFCE, Openoffice, and one of
    Linus's latest kernels from Git. The root filesytem was Tux3:

    Preliminary benchmarks show Tux3 performing well, though optimization
    work has not yet begun in earnest. Many thanks to the usual cast of
    characters, especially Hirofumi who continued to feed me bug fix
    patches into the wee hours of Sunday morning, and Timothy Huber who
    provided a wild ride to the show as well as some very slick graphics.

    Tux3 did not crash. That is good, because recovery is not fully
    implemented. However, we think it is about time to start reviewing
    this code, with a view to getting an early merge. The essential
    structure is all there, and it works pretty well. Tux3 has plenty to
    offer in terms of advancing the state of the art of Linux storage,
    and will best be able to offer that as part of mainline.

    Tux3 source code is here:

    A Git tree will appear soon, along with proper kernel patches. But
    that is for later and now is time to sleep. It has been a long week.
