ext4 on the CentOS 7 image? I was expecting XFS.
Seeing as XFS was deemed as the default filesystem for RHEL/CentOS 7, I kind of expected when running
df -Th that I would find the root filesystem as being XFS. That said, I found it as being ext4. Was this done intentionally? I know an installation to a VM that I did was XFS out of the box, and Linode’s image is the same way. I suppose it doesn’t really affect things at all for my use case, but I am curious why ext4 was chosen.
