Interestingly enough, Apple recommends that you NOT use UFS with OSX.
Something to do with integration, and UFS not supporting all the cool
metadata that MacOS applications need. They also say it's slower than HFS+.
I tried a ufs-only install, and some of the Carbon-ized apps I use didn't
care for it. Went back to HFS+ for the nonce, although it may be foreever if
the group of Mac developers on comp.sys.mac.system get their way; they're
petitioning Apple to *keep* the resource forks and all that non-UNIX stuff.
I really like the Quicksilver 800DP I spent too much money on. Now if I
could just find a SCSI card for it....
