tech question (btrfs) Show more
i'm reading about btrfs and still struggling to see any reason why i wouldn't just use ext4. there's gotta be a reason, right? i'm just not seeing any, especially if you just want a no-nonsense fs that you don't plan on interacting with all that much. snapshots and subvolumes and all that stuff just looks like a hassle rn
tech question (which filesystem for which use case) Show more
@trwnh https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems offers several features lists for A LOT of fs.
But it's a flood of features not especially important and no conclusion (that would potentially violate NPOV). So more useful to answer questions like "what fs has ..." or "is ... has ...".
You'll notice ext4 has good write performance. So if you write a lot, it's not bad to use it.
