Tux3 Will Likely Soon Be Added To The Linux Kernel

Filed under
Linux

The Tux3 author intends to publish his Tux3 patches to the kernel mailing list in the next week or two with the intent of mainlining the file-system into the Linux kernel. There's still some features to add and bugs to work through, but Phillips is now at a stage where he's comfortable in seeing all of the code mainlined into the Linux kernel. He also hopes that by being in the mainline kernel will be an up-tick of interest and development support for the file-system.

I hope these questions will help you determine whether open source is a good fit for your next software project. Let me know if there are other questions you would add to this list. Read more
