"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

Not the loudest monkey in the tree.

Let it be known that I am not a fan of reiserfs. I have had it screw me over too many times at all hours, force me to sit around while it's had to fsck repeatedly to get anywhere, yadda yadda...

So when people start talking about why reiser4 isn't in the Linux kernel yet I just have to grunt and go back to working on getting all our stuff on Solaris.

And, the bastion of hilarious insanity that it is, the first comment on osnews?

Am I the only one who feels that Linux *badly* needs a new filesystem, and that is a shame that Reiser4, having been declared stable years ago, isn't still being officially supported?

When I saw that SUSE had dropped Reiserfs (3) as its default filesystem I had the shock of my life.

Reminds me of those birds from Mostly Harmless. The ones who were like flying goldfish: Constantly surprised by the most inane things.
