Well, while a fan of anything IRIX, I've had issues with XFS in the  
past as with all filesystems.

I still use it but not in all cases.

A good fs, fast, reliable for the most part but by no means a fan boi  
of it.

You did come across as a serious fan though.

However if you like XFS, I'll assume you liek IRIX so check the 5dwm  
project which is the IRIX desktop for Linux.
