An anonymous reader writes: The Tux3 file-system that's been in development since 2008 as the public replacement to the patent-blocked Tux2 file-system is now under review for inclusion into the Linux kernel. Tux3 tries to act as a "light, tight, modern file-system. We offer a fresh approach to some ancient problems," according to its lead developer Daniel Phillips. Tux3 strives for minimal resource consumption but lacks enterprise-grade reliability at this point. Tux3 at the end of the day tries to be "robust, fast, and simple" with the Linux FS reportedly being as fast as other well known file-systems. Details on the project are at Tux3.org.
