I have come to appreciate reiser4 on its technical meritocracy. I have never lost any data in the five(5) to six(6) years I have used this superb filesystem in my daily computing environment. I have come to appreciate reiser4 unmatched reliability and resiliency features --as well as its quirks-- and, logically, there was this odd uneasiness about being forced to work on ext4 strange root file system. Hence, I began to explore the possibility of replacing this alien file system that was imposed on me by the FOSS 'ethically entitled overlords' who --besides pretending their corporate employers and/or host countries' historical deeds are a 'paradigm of ethical and moral virtuosity' (especially in the West ;)) -- effectively blacklist predetermined software by dictating to their GNU...er, XYZ project's herd what 'ethical and moral virtuosity' their Linux distributions' file system should default to.
