Speaking of spending the day fscking your disks - has anyone considered
developing jfs or any journaling fs for Linux (to avoid just this
massive fscking issue)? I haven't read up on what reiserfs promises
or is supposed to deliver, but I haven't heard much hoo-hah on the
linux-kernel list with regards to any journaling fs support.
