The fact that inotify is still considered gold standard and that instead of improving or replacing it with something decent, a solution as crappy as fanotify has been allowed into the kernel speaks volumes about Linux Kernel development. Elsewhere, FSEvents (starting from OS X 10.7) is centuries ahead: Subscription to recursive per-file change events, including the responsible PID. Clearly, 2014 will be the year of the Linux Desktop.  #linux   #inotify   #fanotify   #owncloud
