"Among the highlights of the event, the Linux
Foundation presented the new BtrFS Linux filesystem. A workgroup at
the foundation is working on the filesystem to address the
increasing volume of data. Developers from IBM, Intel, Novell and
other enterprises are working under Oracle's leadership to get a
version of BtrFS in the kernel by end of year. Meanwhile Ted T'so's
parallel effort to get his ext4 filesystem into the kernel is
already in the works."
