MacOS vs UNIX file system on install?
I do an even division between video work (FCP3) and web design/local hosting with OS X.
I'm getting a new iMac 700MHz, and am probably going to wipe the system clean and do a fresh install of OS X (I don't want Classic on my machine--I don't need it).
What are the advantages to choosing a UNIX file system (at X installation time) over a MacOS file system? Does the UFS option auto-defragment files? Will using a UNIX file system mess up my video editing? Or is the UFS/MFS division strictly for the file heirarchy (i.e., doesn't actually do anything different when it writes data, or format the HD)?
