And that's crap.
New and casual users will want to put everything in 1
partition. Make it xfs and lilo, they'll be happy. No
fsck, and if they power off their system, they won't corrupt
things -- they may lose everything anything recently written, but
maybe they should clearly know that they should set 'sync'
for disks that might just "go away" (lose power) without a
proper shut down if they can't afford to lose the last 5 minutes
data.
Otherwise, for the occasional power-dip -- they at
least don't have to worry about corruption or 'fsck' times
on anything.

You do realize your proposal to default to lilo if xfs is used totally
hoses users of dmraid right?


What is the issue with lilo and dmraid?
