I think Neal also has a good take on why, which is that it was mostly a closed door development early on, wasn't used on heterogeneous hardware out in the wild, upon release wasn't commonly available for years - and just never really got the same kind of scrutiny and rumor that Btrfs did. > > I don't know what it is about filesystems turning into religions that > do not brook questioning but what I am seeing in these emails is what > turns me off of btrfs every time it is brought up in the same way I > couldn't stand reiser, ZFS, or various other filesystems..

I've said this same thing in recent weeks. I don't understand it. I don't know if you think I've done this. Certainly my experience over 10 years has been Btrfs developers have been among the least defensive, and the first to say it doesn't meet every use case and of course folks should use the file system that fits their requirements the best. > So a good reason why no one brings it up.. you learn quickly that > questioning the perfection of any filesystem will fill your inbox with > tirades from people.
