Linux Filesystem (WIP)

There are two subsystems that I don’t want to dive into, namely the filesystem and the network stack, I thought they were “prone to brain demage” because of the preceived complexity.

Now it has come to the point where I have to include some basic OS level FS knowledge into my kit.

Last week I roughly read a great article Anatomy of the Linux file system by M. Tim Jones to refresh my knowledge.
