Hewlett Packard on Monday said it is making its Tru64 Unix Advanced File System available under the open-source General Public License, version 2.

The AdvFS file system, which was originally developed for Digital Equipment Corp. Alpha Unix machines, can be adopted to Linux, the company said.

HP chose version 2 of the General Public License so that it could be compatible with the Linux kernel. The system can improve the uptime time and performance of Linux file systems, the company said.

Now that is BIG news. The first time I learned Unix was on an HP class server in a HP Unix network.

That file system will help out a bunch.

What are the benefits?

Or how does it compare to Reiser Fs or ext3?
