I want to take a look at JFS and ZFS as well.

Thank you,
Rick C. Hodgin

ZFS is gaining interested in FreeBSD land so I guess the source for it must be available...

Not just FreeBSD.. It's somewhat popular on Linux too (http://zfsonlinux.org/).  On both it's pretty darn stable.  Due to its license, though, it cannot be put into the Linux kernel.

I think Linux and FreeBSD have both gone down different paths and have slightly different ZFS features (although I think the pools + filesystems can be set to a level that maintains compatibility).  Sources for both are available though.

I've been thinking about it.  I can no reason whatsoever to not work with a journaling file system in moving forward.  It is the only path that makes sense for a long-term system.

I'll be looking at JFS in moving forward.

Thank you,
