Linus Torvalds says the Apple HFS+ is crap. I can't quite grasp why he said this, but alot of people believe it to be true. In my opinion the Journalized HFS+, is working just fine. It isn't any worse than other proprietary filesystems such as NTFS. But my question is, instead of putting all that work into making HFS+, why not use an already established filesystem? Back in my computer science undergrad days my Professor always said the most efficient way to write a program was not to do so in the first place; if somebody else already did the same thing. Why reinvent the wheel? Are there certain limitations to the ext3, 4 or UFS that I don't comprehend? I tried reading up on all of them and I felt like a freshman all over again. It seems Apple has something against UFS since it was removed as an option from 10.5 on.
