"The EXT2 file-system has been around for thirty years, it's been over two decades since EXT3 and a decade and a half since EXT4 has been stable in the Linux kernel. EXT2 use has been on the decline and likely just in use for accessing old storage devices / legacy Linux distribution installs. It's being deprecated now though since the file-system driver doesn't support dates beyond the year 2038"
