Remote network filesystems for linux
Lately I've been looking closely at the FUSE project for Linux. This is an interesting project because it allows the programmer to write user space filesystem modules. This is very handy because it means that you don't need to do anything fancy to get extended functionality on your filesystem.
In many ways I like the idea, however, I also am a firm supporter of the WebDav remote filesystem. I still have yet to fully understand how FUSE fits into the whole picture.
I do know that there are some very impressive FUSE based projects out there currently. Many of the projects are dreams for me, like the ability to encrypt and auto-revision all files on a filesystem. This is one project I plan on following!
When creating an ext3 filesystem, use the command: mkfs.ext3
