Martin, Personally, I value the ability to use larger and larger hard drives; my OS supplier saying that I shouldn't seems a little like King Canute. However, I also feel that a RO-optimised disc format is part of it being a "real" OS. Now I admit that this is partly emotional but I wouldn't want to move to a different (ie imported) format unless and until it was shown to have clear benefits for RO running on native RO hardware.

AIUI, the alternatives quoted do not (yet?) show such clear benefits over FileCore.
