,----[ Quote ]
| Prominent open source personalities 
| presented a host of information about 
| current and future developments in Linux at 
| the Linux-Kongress 2009 conference. This 
| time, filesystems were discussed in several 
| presentations. Among the topics were the 
| advantages of Ext4 and Btrfs, fast Ext4 
| filesystem checks, and kernel and userspace 
| tricks for minimising the time-consuming 
| movements of read/write heads, all of which 
| can speed up some tasks by several orders 
| of magnitude!

| Since 1994, the Linux Kongress has been held annually in Germany, with the
| occasional detour to other lovely European locales. In 2008, Linux
| Kongress-goers visited the ancient and beautiful city of Hamburg, and
| apparently liked it so much they didn't want to go home â conference
| organizers have again chosen Hamburg as the site of the Linux Kongress, to be
| held September 22 - 25, 2009. Speaking of organizers, the conference is again
| being orchestrated by the German Unix User Group. OSDevCon, the OpenSolaris
| Developer Conference, will also be held in Hamburg, concurrent with the
| Kongress.

| on specific modules. Dirk Hohndel showed off a netbook that boots up Linux in
| five seconds and in his keynote speech, he called on developers to orient
