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.
