    Flash drive, SSD,SD,USB,ETC Friendly file system


    Being released soon is the Linux 3.8 kernel and one of its many new features is the introduction of the F2FS file-system. The "Flash-Friendly File-System" was developed by Samsung and is showing promise as a new Linux file-system designed around the characteristics of flash-based storage devices. In this article are the first benchmarks of F2FS compared to Btrfs, EXT3, EXT4, XFS, JFS, and ReiserFS file-systems.
    [Phoronix] F2FS File-System Shows Hope, Runs Against Btrfs & EXT4

    The only drive I am running Btrfs on is /home partition on a platter sata drive with AntiX 13 testing. My SSD AntiX 13 Netbook
    with the new Kingston 64gig SSD drive is all Ext2, (I be paranoid still). With some tweaks to fstab, grub, and /media/ramdisk to limit writes.

    Thanks, roky -- I wondered what F2FS meant and hadn't gotten around to looking it up!
