SI vs. Binary prefixes in file system sizes
The references to "terabytes" & "exabytes" should probably be changed to "tebibytes" & "exbibytes". File system size limits are generally binary not decimal numbers. See Terabyte (referenced in the article). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:26, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Claims on the first journaling filesystem
The article states that it's the first commercial journal filesystem. There's a link at the bottom of the page for comparisons, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems and that page clearly states that JFS1, from IBM, was the first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:21, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
- I don't see the link (and unsurprisingly, much of the comparison page simply goes to unsourced notes). I looked for comparisons of initial release dates online, but was unable to find a reliable source for dates earlier than in this article. If you have a reliable cite, you should add it Tedickey (talk) 21:34, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
