That is very intersting to read.

I have noticed serious problems - particularly when compared to the pathetic
NTFS - in directories with large numbers of files. My media directory has
around 6000 files in various sub directories and it always kills konqeror
when displaying any portion of it.

Also, I paid particular attention to this part, "ReiserFS v3 is a dead end.
Hans has been pushing reiser4 for years now
and declared Reiser3 in maintenance mode. Any changes that aren't bug
fixes are met with violent resistance. Reiser4 is not an incremental
update and requires a reformat, which is unreasonable for most people."

I thought I WAS on v4, so I'm curious why v3 is even discussed.

Yeah, it seems like the world is moving to ext3, which is also mentioned in
the posting.

Thanks!
