What will be the purpose in writing ReiserFS in fasm?

This is an excellent software as it is and the source code is available, so what we will expect to obtain (real advantages) by writing it in fasm?

Being MenuetOS desktop-oriented targetting a personal daily basis useage, maybe it is better to write a small fasm written filesystem optimized for accessing small files quickly, for searching, for audio-video streaming,...

Whats your definition of a desktop? or personal daily usage? Smile

With my "desktop-oriented-personal-daily-basis machine, I listen to muisc, play games, and do a bit art work and study, my file sizes can range from few KB's to 25Gb's, why limit what a file system can do, plus the Reiser4 file system is not optimized for large files only, its optimized all file transactions full stop no matter what the size.

Have you ever tried uncompressing a million 1Kb files to your harddrive? watch the performance of your system drop, and thats on NTFS, can you image how bad it would be on FAT32! are those the kind of small files your talking about =)

If your going to have a fast small kickass OS might as well have a kickass file system to go with it. Smile

Has anyone seem the "Zoom 3" demo?

go to http://www.back2roots.org/Demos/Files/Zoom%203/
