That's hardly fair. Here is an excerpt from what he said :
"Not sure you want to ship a 3.0 without it. It is 50-150% faster than
V3, which makes it a significant competitive advantage. I forget how
much faster writes are, something well over 100% faster, and the newest
version is faster yet.
How do I put it. I'm the last straggler coming back from the hunt, and
I've got what looks like it might be a wooly mammoth on my shoulders,
and my tribesmen are complaining that I'm late for dinner. How about
helping me by cutting down a tree for the roasting spit instead? Think
thoughts of the poor hungry Microsoft tribe eating NTFS.
Oh, and it has features too, not just performance..."
Yes, there was lengthy discussion and some disagreement about including
Reiser4 in the 2.6 kernel (which some thought would be 3.0), but it was
not an unreasonable request, and eventually got included on merit.
I've always liked that "straggler coming back from the hunt" metaphor :-)
