Default filesystem

Postby stafio » Tue Oct 21, 2008 3:03 pm

I've been researching filesystems lately and read several places that JFS has the lowest CPU usage out of the various filesystems. With that in mind, wouldn't this make JFS a good default filesystem for Mint XFCE CE? I know that it's not as widely used as EXT3, but it's been out for a while and seems quite stable. The latest version of jfsutils was released in July of this year, so there is still work being done on it. JFS is also being considered as the default FS for Ubuntu.

What I've found talking against it is that you might have problems in/decreasing partition size, but I may have misunderstood

You're right, I've read that it is not possible to decrease the size of a JFS partition. I guess I was thinking selfishly, as I've never personally had a reason to do so.

I install and uninstall quite a bit and it's good to be able to resize partitions

Hmm maybe but to quote a guy on the web, "So what? I don't need to resize my home partition anyway. And everything else can be reinstalled: I don't care much about the rest of the disk, as what matters is in my home partition."
