Yep.. didn't think of that as I have never reasoned
for running linux on any of those platforms. ;) I've
used to running Solaris on sparc.. and when needed
linux on x86 hardware (when solaris for intel was not
the correct choice).

Though; I look forward for SGI's implementation og
XFS when it arrives in beta this summer.

Though; are there any possibilities that Zope may
implement "Oracle style" distribution og the databases
in due time? Like then you have a bit more "control" 
over where you put your data .. and what kind of devices
you put them on?

.. possibly this can be done through ZEO and the beta
shared object database (mount more than one instance 
of the Data.fs files).

Have a real nice day! ;)
