[20051004] Big numbers 1: MFS vs. TMPFS
Answering a pending question on "mfs vs. tmpfs", Simon Burge has done some testing to compare memory usage and execution times on a number of common operatins on the traditional MFS which uses UFS datastructures and cannot free them (i.e. which is "grow-only) over NetBSD's new Summer-of-Code resulted TMPFS, which does not have these drawbacks.

Looks like a pretty clear winner!
