It only seems natural that a simpler, transparent approach to versioning files on a regular file system would be a net win. There's ext3cow and Wayback FS, and possibly some fuse-based projects, but each is either dead, immature or just not applicable. So what happened to the promise of versioning file systems? Hasn't everyone lost a file to a bad rm command? Hasn't everyone wished they could see a revision of a file in the past? What's the hold up?
It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small
price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
