Default PFS3 System partition

All this talk of PFS3 got me thinking...

Is it o.k to have the sys: partition use PFS or SFS or should your sys: always use the vanilla filesystem?

Default Re: PFS3 System partition

Personally I use FSS for boot up partitions for OS 3.0 to 3.9, but for OS 4.0 I use SFS.

All data and storage partitions I use SFS, as it allows you up to 1TB sized partitions and no limit to single file sizes.

The boot partition benefits most from PFS3's speed. The boot process will be significantly faster with PFS3. It really does not make any sense to leave the boot partition FFS if PFS3 is used on other partitions.

SYS: can be PFS3 just fine. It even works with MorphOS (on Pegasos and Efika, on Mac the partitioning system doesn't support external filesystems). Note however that it doesn't work with AmigaOS4.

SYS: SFS works on all systems.
