To follow up, how about an article comparing the different filesystems in use today? There are fascinating technologies like reiserfs, zfs, xfs,... out there but more traditional filesystems like ext2/3 and ufs are still dominant. It would be nice to have a good article about the promises of the newer approaches and the real-world factors that keep older approaches popular, and if this is going to change any time soon.
And a similar article about network filesystems would also be nice:
"NFS, the network file system everyone loves to hate but uses all the time anyway."
It's not as if alternatives have not been developed - AFS and Coda, InterMezzo - or are favoured in certain circles - CIFS/SMB.
Again, comparisons of features and real world performance would be great.
Of course this kind of information may well be available from a quick google, but articles by engineers who actually work on this kind of stuff and can write in English are hard to find in the noise. Feel free to post a link...
