journaling file systems

There are a number of journaling filing systems available for linux, and as far as I know no other operating system supports journaling. These include ReisserFS, JFS (from IBM), XFS (from SGI) and ext3.

Ext3 has a number of advantages over the others, including backward compatability with ext2, and being the basis for the improved network filesystem InterMezzo.
