Creating a filesystem on a partition

You can use any filesystem you'd like for MineOS, so long as you mark it to be built into the kernel. However, the recommended filesystems (most stable and rigorously tested) would be ReiserFS, EXT3, and EXT4.

For the sake of familiarity (and how MineOS was originally created), I recommend ReiserFS. ReiserFS dynamically creates inodes, which is more efficient for handling incredibly high filecounts. This issue was addressed in Minecraft 1.3, wherein chunks are now saved in the McRegion format created by Ryan Hitchman, a more filesystem-efficient chunk-file format. However, ReiserFS serves its purpose as primary filesystem exceptionally.
