i have just been looking at the benchmarking stats for reiser4 and it looks
pretty cool. i was wondering if there is there is any reason to implement
this kind of file system in multimedia environments. i current have my
root/system partition as reiserFS and my home partition as ext3. i find this
to be quite efficient but perhaps if there would be an improvement to
recording stability and speed, then perhaps it could work well with apps
like ardour. although, reiser seems to be happiest with small files, reiser4
claims to be more efficient than ext3.... or that could be just spin.
These days the choice of filesystem should make no significant
difference. Certainly it won't matter if an -rt kernel is used.
Well, doesn't reiserfs use quite a lot more cpu than ext3? I think
that may make a significant difference...
