    SubjectXFS and journalling filesystems
    In light of the recent announcement by SGI (that the core of the XFS
    journalling filesystem will be opensourced this summer) what is "the
    panel's" view of the continuing devlopment of ext3/whatever the linux
    jfs will be called. Should we adopt XFS as the defacto replacement for
    ext2?

    Of course this is all dependant on SGI coming through and releasing the
    source under a kernel friendly licence agreement (GPL seems sensible to
    prevent plundering by Sun/HP et al.) but whatever the outcome, the open
    sourcing of commercial technologies (opposed to applications), whatever
    they are is cool.
