Ubuntu doesnโ€™t need disk-defragmenting

From this article:

If youโ€™re a Linux user, youโ€™ve probably heard that you donโ€™t need to
defragment your Linux file systems. Youโ€™ll also notice that Linux
distributions donโ€™t come with disk-defragmenting utilities. But why is
that?

To understand why Linux file systems donโ€™t need defragmenting in
normal use โ€“ and Windows ones do โ€“ youโ€™ll need to understand why
fragmentation occurs and how Linux and Windows file systems work
differently from each other.
