ZFS Hits an Important Milestone, Version 0.6.1 Released 99

sfcrazy writes "ZFS on Linux has reached what Brian Behlendorf calls an important milestone with the official 0.6.1 release. Version 0.6.1 not only brings the usual bug fixes but also introduces a new property called 'snapdev.' Brian explains, 'The snapdev property was introduced to control the visibility of zvol snapshot devices and may be set to either visible or hidden. When set to hidden, which is the default, zvol snapshot devices will not be created under /dev/. To gain access to these devices the property must be set to visible. This behavior is analogous to the existing snapdir property.'"

I think you are giving people too much credit. Most people are conditioned to think of blogs as a personal opinion. It is not part of their thought process to assume that a blog might be an advertisement. If an average person sees a personal testimony ranting and raving about a product in some sort of banner ad, he probably wouldn't give it a second thought. But when seeing it in a medium that usually has little or no direct advertising, he will see it differently. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with this advertising tactic, but I like the exposure it is getting with the fake awards. Hopefully it will help people think a little bit out side of their normal thought process.
