I'm not SuSE. I only use it. Perhaps it's not for you
(proprietarized and all).

Of course. Before mkreiserfs I copied about 10 GB from the volume, ext3
Ext3, it took 36 minutes. After mkreiserfs I copied back 13,6 GB in
50 minutes flat. Do ll on a real big directory, the listing just gushes
forth. Sorry, no official benchmark made.
If you'll excuse me, I've gotta go check POSIX compliance. Bye.
