Microsoft Challenges Linux's Legacy Claims

crazyphilman Re:Yeah? SO WHAT? Pointless "benchmark"... (618 comments)

I admit it, I blew it on the journalling point. And you're right on the money about defragmenting. Here's a point another poster made to me: if your drives are IDE and not SATA, the journalling in NTFS might not always recover after a crash, which explains what happened to the PCs in my office (corrupted registries, etc). That's interesting, isn't it? That the drive type might affect the outcome?

I learn something every day here.

I have considered this at length. Having had this account for many years, and occasionally posted drunkenly, and sarcastically, and trollishly, I think it might be about time for me to move on to a new, clean account and sever all ties with this one. I shall bid my anonymous crazyphilman identity farewell, and let it fade into obscurity.

Consider this a sort of account suicide, while I move on to fresher pastures and start anew.
