Speedier Ext4 Filesystem Available In Ubuntu 9.04

Ext4, the next-generation filesystem for Linux storage, is rolled into the latest (alpha) Ubuntu 9.04 daily builds. Considering it nearly laps its counterparts in benchmark tests by Phoronix, that could mean some nice speed-ups in handling larger files (and maybe boot-ups?) [via; graph by Phoronix]


    The bar-graph is meaningless, so what's the point of showing it?

    I just converted from ext3 to ext4. My boot up time is about half of what it was before. I have all of the same software installed and all the same daemons running.

    And, ext3 was already faster then ntfs (the windows file system)
