 Why ZFS for home

I think a lot of us manage the stuff at work very differently that we manage our personal machines. And this is not a good thing.

"ZFS scales from one drive to an infinite number of drives and has benefits for all of them. Let's take a look at the average home computer a single drive holding a mix of files, up to 300GB drives are common. That is a lot of data to lose and its getting easier lose data these days. Further more new hard drives aren't getting any more reliable with time. Of course you can lose things on new hard drives by just misplacing them in one of the 1000's of directories you can use in an attempt to organize your files. "
