Samsung Brings Fixes To F2FS In Linux 3.9 Kernel
Phoronix: Samsung Brings Fixes To F2FS In Linux 3.9 Kernel
Samsung developers have worked up a set of improvements to the new F2FS file-system for the Linux kernel. The F2FS work in Linux 3.9 mostly comes down to fixing issues with the Flash-Friendly File-System and implementing some new functionality...
My wish is F2FS to eventually replace exFAT for removable media. But it won't happen because it seems that the only thing that the industry values is compatibility with Microsoft products (instead of the other way around, where Microsoft should be forced to be compatible with open standards), despite of being subject to patent licensing.
Great. That was fast. Time is coming to actually try it with kernel 3.9 ...
Well the good news is that this may well be changing. Microsoft is no longer in the dictator position it once was, because there are options now and manufacturers are starting to see it. If android devices start using F2FS instead of lard, that's a huge market segment right there that manufacturers aren't likely to ignore.
