Parent article: XFS: the filesystem of the future?
Unix is dead, sorry. On Linux you have filesystems which was was unreliable against crashes at all (ext, ext2, etc) or which guarantee atomicity across reboots (ext3, ext4, btrfs). Oh, and there are XFS, too - looks like it's developers finally understood that filesystems exist to support applications, not the other way around (even if XFS fanbois didn't)
P.S. Yes, ext4 and btrfs also had the problem under discussion. But they were quickly fixed.
