    ... Before ext3, any competent developer understood that until you fsynced a file none of its modifications were guaranteed to be on disk - and most of them understood that this clearly meant that if you renamed a file to overwrite a different file without such an fsync then a crash could leave you with an empty renamed file because metadata updates often were forced to disk faster than content updates. ... And so a lot of incompetent developers just stopped including the fsync, blithely ignoring the fact that this would cause their code to break in any environment *other* than ext3 in this default configuration (i.e., any situation where a different file system was in use or even just one where ext3 was configured to place performance first). ... Along came ext4 and with several other major improvements it fixed the unintentional behavior of ext3, thereby exposing all those relatively recent incompetently-written applications to their just deserts. ...
