HFS vs UFS speed

Hi OzX-ers,

Has anyone done a speed comparison between HFS and UFS file system implementations on 10.1? Which is faster? I know about the functionality differences between them, but if you're setting up OSX by itself without 9.2.1, would anyone recommend one over the other for speed?

Check this discussion, seems to be one of the clearest answers...

HFS vs. UNIX

:D

If someone has a clearer answer please don't hesitate to post it!

HFS+ is faster in all cases, and also preserves some information which UFS will not in specific cases. For example creation date.

I haven't seen a single reason to use UFS. Some people can't be bothered to change a few things in order to have some things compile on HFS+ (due to case sensitivity), but in those cases you can create a UFS disk image.
