Chris Mason, creator of Btrfs, has quit Oracle. Chris is joining Fusion-io, a next generation storage memory specialist.
Chris says, "Oracle has been a fantastic place to work, and I really appreciate their support for my projects. But, I've decided to take a new position at Fusion-io. I will start the new job on Monday, June 11."
How Is This Going To Affect Btrfs
Chris is the inventor of Btrfs and the file system is about to replace ext4 as the default file system for Linux machines, so what future holds for Btrfs?
Chris says, "From a Btrfs point of view, very little will change. I'll still maintain Btrfs and will continue all of my Btrfs development in the open. Oracle will still use Btrfs in their Oracle Linux products, and I'll work with all of the distros using Btrfs in production."
