Generally it's a limitation with how the file system has been created. Different 
parameters when creating the filesystem will yield different results. So the number of 
available inodes is really dependent on the parameters with which you create thge 
filesystem. On Linux it's dependent on parameters for block_size, bytes_per_inode, etc.
