Reiser4, btrfs, ext3 and ext4 Linux file systems news

Filed under
Linux

Several new developments around the Reiser4, btrfs, ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems, which are mostly used under Linux, have been published in the last few days.

It appears that Namesys, the company behind the development of Reiserfs and Reiser4 is no longer in operation. However, he and several other developers would continue to develop the Reiser4 file system. The file system's source code is now available for download as a patch for Linux versions 2.6.22 and 2.6.23.

Based on ext3, the ext4 file system is actively being developed.

The up and coming btrfs file

The up and coming btrfs file system for Linux is nothing more than a blatant repackaging of the now defunct Reiser4 file system. I believe this is an effort to hide the true source of the code and shield it from an inevitable political disaster.

The steps and code below will break apart and compare the source code of btrfs and reiser4. It clearly shows that they are 81.56% identical. I consider this undeniable proof of a cover up.
