>>1062315>ext4 is nice
ext4 is prehistoric and doesn't even have a defragmenter. It is truly a joy seeing every file your torrent client downloads have 23,000 fragments, reading the file locks the machine up for minutes, and the only solution being "backup and format the drive, bro"*.
Ext4 is somewhere between exfat and ntfs in terms of features and it's certainly not worth changing OS for. It's missing a bunch of NTFS stuff, particularly transactions and snapshots. I can totally get the argument for changing OS to get ZFS or BTRFS, but not ext4.

the free space gets fragmented too, making some awful gordian knot of fragmentation
