I'd have to modify that. Instead of NIH, my worry is that since XFS

concern with jfs.
I suppose that's a valid concern, but in the absence of any evidence
of problems caused by it I can't say I'm going to lose any sleep. :)
Given that SGI boxes now use Linux and have dropped Irix but still use
XFS, I think it pretty likely that they have done a good job of ensuring
that Linux's XFS is up to snuff.
Linux runs on a very wide range of hardware. What you say is true for the
sort of hardware SGI is using, but can't be used to predict how XFS might
work for other hardware.
