But Apple discourages UFS.  They don't even guarantee that all MacOSX
components work on UFS so it is pretty unlikely.  NFS is
case-sensitive for Windows clients as well, so that's not the point.
Or rather it was my point some messages back for a slightly different
question ;-).

If I see this right, the common user on MacOSX works on HFS+,
AppleTalk (plain Mac shops) or SMB volumes (corporate users), all
case-insensitive.  The common user on GNU/Linux works on ext2, ext3,
NFS (case-sensitive), some have secondary volumes on FAT and SMB
(case-insensitive).  Seeing your affiliation you probably have better
data on GNU/Linux users ;-).

so long, benny
