What was the first file system in Linux distribution/s?
The "parallel" to FAT (?) in Windows at the early nineties?
I want to know the name to read information about this; perhaps it was the same one utilized in Unix (Unix filesystem).

Linux initially used the MINIX file system, and very early distributions relied on that. The extended file system quickly took over, followed by Ext2 and xiafs (which was never much developed, and ultimately disappeared in favour of Ext2).
It was also possible to run Linux on FAT, using umsdos.
