ReiserFS seems to try to be a filesystem on a DBMS. I wonder if it would not be more powerful and easy to make that DBMS a relational one, like MS and IBM oft promised but never delivered.

Like IBM promised ... ?

Didn't IBM DELIVER with the AS/400 / OS/400 combo?

And take a look at Pick, which was doing exactly that in the sixties. btw, did you know that Pick was the ?first? commercial DBMS to be ported to linux, some seven or so years ago?

And take a look at open source Pick, www.maverick-dbms.org

Cheers,
Wol

No, because the OS/400 isn't relational. It is but the engine for SQL, and even SQL is in several violations of fundamental precepts and proscriptions of the relational model.

Pick is not even up to SQL standards. It's not even a deviation from the relational model, but totaly unrelated.
