Thanks, i will try it in my nest build....i might need to build a Linux box around a mini-ITX MB sooner than i thought and will use ZFS on it...

Data integrity is a must but i would like to know if there is a speed penalty if i also use it in a gaming rig....
some of use like to use software from current decade... It's not like even basic software is feature complete (for example: pdf readers)

BTW: Ubuntu upgrade process is quite solid (compared to Windows, it's rock solid), so you're really barking up the wrong tree.
I'm a software developer myself and I'm all for testing software. But in this case, I've to agree with dsmithhfx.

...aaaaand if you read the bug now it's clearly just because Ubuntu 12.10 doesn't shut down cleanly. Nothing to do with ext4 itself or the kernel at all.
I know it's fun to pull the AWOOGA lever, Michael, but maybe in future you might want to wait a few hours before leaping tall buildings to a single conclusion.
Move along, there's nothing to see here.
Sigh, Michael seems hellbent on spreading misinformation as long as it carries with it enough sensationalism to perhaps lead to more clicks.
I can't see how it can be worth alienating lots of open source developers without which Michael would have nothing to report. I'm also sure I'm not the only one who has turned on adblock on Phoronix due to Michael's propensity not only to engage in extremely slanted reporting but sometimes what seems like outright disinformation that goes way beyond adding a 'catchy soundbite'.
Phoronix as a concept has much promise, in practice I find it becoming the equivalent of an utter trash tabloid. I'm not expecting in-depth technological articles since that is obviously not where Michael's strengths lie. I would however wish for something atleast approaching an objective reporting rather than the 'let's-see-what-crazy-spin-we-can-put-on-this' dishonesty we are often served now.

Can we stop spreading FUD, this bug is just as much of an insane edge case as the other "corruption bug"
Two ridiculous edge cases, with ridiculous steps to reproduce makes ext4 'unreliable'? Give me a fucking break.
