    Default Merging Tux3 Into The Mainline Linux Kernel

    Phoronix: Merging Tux3 Into The Mainline Linux Kernel

    Remember the Tux3 file-system? The Tux3 file-system was shown off at the Southern California Linux Expo earlier this year and showed real promise with its features and slated performance. The developers behind Tux3 had a host of items on their to-do list, including atomic commit support, which to them was a requirement for getting this general purpose file-system into the Linux kernel.

    I actually think that is very good name!

    Haven't we all written programs as kids that we called our own name?

    And that is what Linux is. Just a small program that was not meant for anything seriously
