Oracle Loses Top Linux Filesystem Dev

Oracle is losing one of its key Linux developers. Chris Mason, leader of the Btrfs filesystem effort officially left Oracle on Friday.

In his farewell note, Mason took an indirect shot at Oracle.

Oracle has been a fantastic place to work, and I really appreciate their support for my projects. But, I’ve decided to take a new position at Fusion-io….Fusion-io really believes in open source, and I’m excited to help them shape the future of high performance storage.
