It continues to look promising ....... thanks for the update
Its my pleasure Just17
A few more tests this time against Microsoft's exFAT file system
Posted by Michael Larabel on F March 03, 2013F2FS Results Mixed Against Microsoft's exFAT On Linux(From Page 1
In the benchmarking that has happened since the release of the Linux 3.8 kernel, there's been many tests that occurred of Samsung's Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS). With that testing has also come many requests to compare the performance of this file-system designed for flash storage devices to Microsoft's exFAT file-system as well as NTFS. In this article are those benchmark results.
Up to this point the F2FS file-system benchmarks on Phoronix have shown really great results against Btrfs and EXT4 from a high-end Intel SSD, positive SDHC storage benchmark results, and better performance than NILFS2. The new file-system was also proven to run really well on USB flash drives. With those tests, the comparison was done against other existing Linux kernel file-systems like EXT4, Btrfs, and even older competition like ReiserFS and EXT3 for some of the articles.(and from Page 4
When it came to running exFAT on PostMark, its performance was about three times faster than F2FS.These results are fairly surprising..
. For some disk workloads, the FUSE-based Microsoft exFAT file-system was faster than the in-kernel F2FS file-system. Earlier Phoronix tests have shown that F2FS from flash storage is already generally competitive with the popular Btrfs and EXT4 Linux file-systems. Seeing a user-space implementation of the Microsoft file-system outperforming the in-kernel "Flash-Friendly File-System" came as a shock. Then again, Tuxera claimed NTFS is the fastest file-system
In the end it will be interesting to see how the F2FS situation plays out. While Samsung is presently leading the development of this open-source file-system, it stands slim chances of seeing deployments on consumer electronic devices from the company unless F2FS were also to be ported and widely available for Windows and OS X. Given the turnaround time there and that F2FS will likely need a few years to prove itself as a safe and reliable file-system, don't look for F2FS (or any other open-source file-system) to unseat Microsoft's exFAT in the immediate future.http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_f2fs_exfat&num=1
