time for (another) change?

Parent article: Reiser4 and kernel inclusion
Reiser4 should be merged. People can choose if they want to use it or not.
If the namesys people will not fix bugs, mark it "experimental" in the
kernel options. But merge it!
Linux should be innovative, and reiser4 could be. It sounds like a good
step in a new field.
I'm still missing the very nice and simple to understand filesystem
features that Novell's Netware provided already back in at least 1996
(Netware 4). With a few clicks, users or groups could be assigned all
types of accesses. ACLs do the trick now, but are not that easy to use as
those on Netware.
Linux should try to become more user friendly (still), and reiser4 could
be a good step.
