Well yeah, but the way I remember it, SGI was using it for real work 
like video editing and storing zillions of files back when Linux was a 
toy with a 2 gig file size limit and linear directory scans as the only 
option.   If you mean that the Linux side had a not-invented-here 
attitude about it and did the port badly you might be right...
