Ext3 Explained

IBM's developerWorks explains everything you cared to know about the new ext3 filesystem for Linux and why you would like it. Basically it adds journaling capabilities to the ubiquitous ext2 filesystem. The amazing thing in my mind is that if you cleanly unmount an ext3 partition is can immediately be remounted as ext2. They briefly compare it to ReiserFS as well. I will be running ext3 as soon as I upgrade to Red Hat 7.2. Thanks Slashdot.
