Storing files contiguously on disk

I forgot to mention the most hilarious aspect of this. The full title of
the patent is

CONTIGUOUS FILE ALLOCATION IN AN EXTENSIBLE FILE SYSTEM

They had the nerve to even mention one prior art file system in the title

Their lawyers would argue that Extensible != Extended

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext3

Well, I would argue that Extensible == Extensible.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xfs

Yes, the wikipedia article doesn't mention it for whatever reason, but that
is
actually what XFS stands for

Anders
