8 It's not something I'm really concerned about - I don't need the
9 features XFS provides and ReiserFS 3.6 works just fine for me. I just
10 understand why SGI built XFS the way they did and what problem they
11 were solving by doing it that way.
13 I find it useful to keep in mind that XFS is a file-system (i.e. a
14 system for files), and not necessarily a severly disk-bound filesystem
