17 I think one reason may be this, there are people on this list that have
18 more experience than a lot of devs. By that, I mean real life
19 experience. Sometimes what devs expect doesn't actually happen in real
20 life situations. For example, when testing a file system and how it
21 frags, large files, small files or medium size files? Are these files
22 changing or once saved they never change?
24 So, sometimes asking a person who actually uses something can have
25 better advice than the person that created it.
27 Just saying.
