just curios if anyone's using btrfs yet and weather theres anyone out there still sticking with ext2/3, maybe using something less common. (going to exclude swap and tmpfs/ramfs from this)

Ext2/4 and ZFS here smile.gif

Shouldn't everyone that has Linux have an ext2 partition for the boot or whatever? PS...btrfs only seemed to be good on MeeGo. In buntu and fedora I had nothing but random weird little "hiccups" where fschk (whatever it's called) would run sooner than scheduled because something would crash. But that was 2 years ago.

I'd be using overlayfs if I could figure out how to get it to do the damn RAMdisk thing that people did with unionfs. I'd say more but one guy on here got upset when I didn't want to go software RAIDing. redface.gif

May question is what are people with SSDs using? I mean do you basically turn off the journaling and the timestamps for access times?

mines ext4. anyway, I used to have a fat /boot/efi thing, but since then I've switched back to mbr just cause I was repartitoning and said to hell with it, so now I have just Ext4 and Btrfs (new fedora 18 dualboot) but also have an NTFS external connected 24/7

NTFS, ext4 for fileserver

For some reason I am continually compelled to install reiserfs onto VMs. Something about using a file system primarily created by a murderer..

Things change but when I first used Ubuntu 10.10 as a folding OS we were instructed to change from the default ext4 to the earlier ext3.It was explained that the WU write time would be faster.This was an early -bigadv recommendation and those files could easily exceed 10mb.Here is a link that gives some details from 1 year ago (this is a pretty long time in the folding world,espicaly in this exact aspect) I have completed labs in Debian where we setup RAID configurations and if I remember correctly the instructor wanted use to use the ext3 file system when we did our partitions with LVM.
The -bigadv link http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?4298-Setting-up-Linux-bigadv-folding
Wow,the thread is from Grandpa (he comes around a lot but not a OCN folding team member.He provides a lot of technical support.Thread is not so old (about 1 year)

IIRC ReiserFS was pretty decent in its day. Hans Reiser was working on a follow up (Raiser 4) but that never got finished before the aforementioned saga.

Reiser4 is the "spiritual guide" for Btrfs, I think? Anyway, I've always been tempted by Btrfs, every time I do any install, but I'm yet to find a benchmark that recommends it over ext4. It's close, like within 5%, but still can't find a reason not to use ext4 (rocking ext2 on /boot though, as it's easier than using ext4 then disabling journalling etc)
