And let's not forget the reiserfs version 4 debate that's going on on
the linux-kernel mailing list right now (and could potentially result
in the fs being very different from the standard Unix fs, allowing a
cyclic graph with object inheritance and complex query operations--or
not, since it's not entirely clear that that's a good idea). Check
out the thread "silent semantic changes with reiser4" and related
threads at e.g.
I guess BeOS had a pretty unique FS as well, and its author (Dominic
Giampalo) is working on a new FS for the Mac. And there's the
(recently delayed) WinFS as well.
