As long as nobody gets the idea to import VxFS...  It's dog slow
compared to UFS+softupdates. :-)  Dog slow even compared to
Solaris 8 UFS+logging.  Of course, i know it has other advantages,
but the journalling feature doesn't seem to be the best.  Even
my notebook with its slooow (low-power) IDE drive is faster than
Solaris 8 fibre-channel disks running with VxFS. ;-)

("faster" means in terms of filesystem metadata operation, like file
creations and deletions, since that's the area you normally want to
employ journalling or softupdates for.)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
