It uses very aggressive caching to get decent speed. Take a decent
database box with 32GB RAM, assume MySQL is underworked at the moment
and using 11GB then your power quits on ya.... chances are you just
lost 21GB of your "most used" data which would probably be most of
/var/lib/mysql ;)

Under no circumstances is XFS safe without a UPS.  It has not improved
in this regard and probably never will.  Anyone advising you to deploy
XFS in a production environment without UPS on 'critical' data is a
fool.

Just my two cents, of course, and lets get back on topic? :)

That was my point.  I lost a install once because of XFS and a power
failure.  It would not even think of booting again.  I'm on reiserfs
here and so far, so good.  I guess all file systems have some good
points and some bad points.  Just got to know them before you choose
the wrong one.  :/<br>
<br>
On point tho, is the last available "official" stage3 tarball the same
as the one on the 2007 CD?<br>
