"Many users assume that their advanced filesystem is better than UFS because they have so many features-snapshots, checksums, compression, sophisticated caching algorithms, and so on-while all UFS has ever done is muck about putting data on disk. But, conversely, UFS users believe their filesystem is better for exactly the same reasons."
