Good point ! I remember Windows needing 2 hours to defrag a small 8GB
hard drive. A *nix server with dozen of tera bytes of disk space and
frequent disk access, say databases, would probably be down 90% of it's
time if it had to defrag ! :-O How cool would that be, people could use
their workstation only 30 minutes per day ! ;-/
No wonder why they invented a defrag-free file system then, it was
simply mandatory !
