kiplinger.com: What with Oracle CEO Larry Ellison showing a hefty appetite for enterprise software companies including those selling Open Source products the blogs and analyst ranks are buzzing with rumors that RedHat will get bought by Oracle.

daniweb.com/blogs: Most often, when someone talks about a filesystem or file system, they're referring to disk filesystems such as NTFS, FAT, ext2, ext3, ext4, ISO 9660 and many others but can also refer to network file systems such as CIFS and NFS. But, is there a perfect filesystem?
