Another excelent article by Valerie Henson for those like me who don't really want to be filesystem experts but always want to know a little more.
I'll be waiting for the next! :-)
One thing I miss is some info about any generic filesystems for the now common flash disks, or even CD+-RW/DVD+-RW. Last time I checked jffs/yafs can't be used on generic block devices, only on memory devices (or with some wrapper driver). Couldn't we be using some variation of jffs2 for CD+-RW/DVD+-RW? Maybe with the help of FUSE, as the kernel doesn't know how to write to the CD/DVD?
It seems ideal for incremental backups, at least...
