A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
What a bold statement. Reiser3 (and Reiser4) immediately come to mind, but
there might be more.
NLUUG: The bright future of Linux filesystems
Posted May 14, 2009 6:08 UTC (Thu) by butlerm (subscriber, #13312)
Other than ZFS and perhaps Reiserfs, there does appear to have been a slow
period in filesystem development for about the past decade. It is great to
see that things have picked up.
What I am hoping to hear is that the BTRFS or possibly ZFS folks have
figured out how to support a write-in-place mode, so that the storage of
filesystems within filesystems as well as certain large databases does not
degrade excessively due to fragmentation issues.

When you snapshot or create a clone of a nodatacow file, COW is enforced for the first write of each block after the snapshot, and then things go back to the regular nodatacow mode.
