It's actually been helpful to us, as well.

All of our mail backends are currently Solaris with SAN storage using 
vxfs.  We're considering a move to Linux, but which filesystem to choose 
is still a major unanswered question for us.

After reading this entire thread, it makes me realize that I've been 
taking vxfs for granted.  It's been rock solid and the performance is fine.
