 ext2/ext3/ext4 — why do people do it?

October 5, 2012

I edited a file on my Raspberry Pi.

I then rebooted it.

It then couldn’t mount the root filesystem, which is ext4.

WHY do people still do it ? The EXT file system is stupid, unreliable, and a dark deep pit of fsck-needing-to-run-whenever-the-thing-was-modified.

So, here I am fsck-ing a frigging SD card on my main Linux box which is happily running XFS.

If you hate file-system corruption just stop using EXT(x) please.
