Red Hat Enterprise Linux roadmap

Looking at this article from, it appears the default filesystem for RHEL 7 will be XFS. XFS was the default filesystem from Silcon Graphics Irix Unix from back in the day, and I believe one of the first 64 bit filesystems in widespread use. It’s been open sourced for a while and has been included in the linux kernel for a while now. Also, the desktop version of RHEL 7 will default to the Gnome Classic mode, not the newer Gnome 3.0 interface. That should make many people happy who dislike the newer interface. I’d imagine all of the changes will make their way into a future release of CentOS and others.


Random Mac Pro info…

———————— Just in case anyone is wondering, if you have an older Mac Pro, I have installed a PNY GTX 670 2GB video card and it works fine. You will need an extra 6 pin PCI Express power cable, but it works.
