@rotor idk ext4 is "good enough" sure but there's gotta be a reason that people are excited about these fancy-schmancy new things, right?

@trwnh programmers get excited about any new shit whether it’s useful or not

@rotor ok but this is clearly useful and i'm just having trouble grasping how/why it's useful

although, i'm having much less trouble after someone shared this with me linuxrocks.online/@matt/100874

@trwnh

idk i don’t do weird system stuff. I just plug the disks in and add em to fstab and call it done. ext4 suits my needs and i don’t have to waste three nights figuring out if it’s perfectly optimal

@rotor that's fair, i guess. that's also what i want for the most part. so far the most practical reason i've seen is that ext4 doesn't protect against bitrot
