> The thing to do, if you insist on having a filesystem at all, is to make it as simple and safe as possible and to provide a mechanism for user code to be called when certain filesystem events happen
Funny advice that, we all know that journaling adds complexity to a FS, so safe and simple are conflicting options.
>Even better, though, is to just get rid of filesystems. See EROS and Coyotos.
Better in which sense?
In a paper on EROS, I've read that the main reason that EROS is bigger than L4 is because of its single storage mechanism.
