Re: ext3 with 2.4.18, back to 2.2.20 ?



My totally unofficial and armchair guess is that the went with 2.4
because critical fixes such as NFS server write performance and numerous
hardware drivers did not exist in the 2.2 tree at the time, and they
decided to try and stabilize a branch of the 2.4 kernel instead of
developing 2.2.
