Re:You're Even More Clueless!

You're not so clued up yourself. NT4 with NTFS first saw the light of day in 1996 - before that it was NT3.51 with HPFS.

If defrag was necessary for Linux filesystems, or Novell for that matter, don't you think it would have been made available MANY years ago (the Netware volume structure is more than 15 years old and NSS is nearly nine). "The Community" is incredibly efficient at creating apparently useless small programmes in no time flat because somebody had a need. These useless appendages then begin to lead a life of their own and before you know it, they are full-blown, efficient and highly desirable applications.

The Linux world has had fifteen years to come up with dfrg, KDEfrag! Gefrag or something similar - since it hasn't appeared yet, I for one will not be holding my breath or losing a night's sleep over it.

It is obviously not necessary!
