 An Advanced File System for Linux

"Fortunately, a number of other Linux file systems pick up where Ext2 leaves off. Indeed, Linux now offers four alternatives to Ext2: Ext3, JFS, ReiserFS, and XFS. In addition to meeting some or all of the previously mentioned requirements, each of these alternative file systems also supports journaling, a feature certainly demanded by enterprises but beneficial to anyone running Linux. A journaling file system can simplify restarts, reduce fragmentation, and accelerate I/O. Better yet, journaling file systems make fscks a thing of the past."
