what about resource forks and other peculiarities which are still to be
dealt with on the mac os side, even now (in spite of metadata being
quite a good thing, if it only was more cross-platform)? iirc, there
were some troubles with ufs. at least some time ago, i remember several
mac applications not working on ufs partitions. anybody with more recent
experience?

apart from that, thinking about having crus...^h^h^h^h fat invading my ~
gives me the creeps, anyway <shudder!> just external use under
unfortunate circumstances. and even then no admittance past the front
gate. ;)

a small dedicated server on a local network is propably a better
solution in many cases, anyway (as long as data transfer rates are not
mission critical). plus the benefit of making that abandoned old
hardware of yours feel proud and useful again... ;-)

best,

sascha
