Agreed -- with the things I see from the Solaris (and zfs) and Sparc
hardware in general, my money's still on Linux/LVM/Reiser/ext3.

250,000 mailboxes, 1,000 concurrent users, 60 million emails, 500k
deliveries/day.  For us, backups are the worst thing, followed by
reiserfs's use of BLK, followed by the need to use a ton of disks to
keep up with the i/o.
