Great Show

Thanks for this great introduction to XFS. I had been wondering why Daniel Robbins (creator of Gentoo, Funtoo) recommends it. While it seems ideal for enterprise use, for personal use it's a bummer that you can't resize (shrink) it. Guess I'll be sticking to my tried-and-true ext configuration in my next system setup.
