as always... i'm sure you're entitled to your differing opinion ..

i say:
	- please explain why there is no press release or official
	notice that suse/novell is changing from reiserfs to ext3
	where those announcments predate sept 3 when all this hit the fan

	changing the default fs is a major issue if you're dealing with
	even itty bitty 200GB or xxx terabyte sized storage systems

	- most all press releases and comments is mostly after his arrest

	- "everybody" knows about the resierfs support and bug problems
	in both reiserfs3 and reiserfs4  vs xfs, jfs, ext3, etc
