History

Development of XFS was started by Silicon Graphics in 1993, with first deployment being seen on IRIX 5.3 in 1994. The filesystem was released under the GNU General Public License in May 2000, and ported to Linux, with the first distribution support appearing in 2001. It is available in almost all Linux distributions today.
