and once again on HFS+
This shows that the only thing going for UFS is it's case-sensitivity. Because UFS does not have journaling and needs to fsck when things go down, it is very unattractive. It's only use nowadays is for porting UNIX software where case sensitivity maybe needed (Makefile makefile MAKEFILE).
This also proves that a software stripe RAID helps nothing to improve compile times. As these were the times I got then:
Wasn't there an option in HFS+ introduced recently to turn on case-sensitivity ?
