Sure, that nets you case sensitive file-system, frees you from needing
third-party tools for disk repair (use fsck), and is actually secure (no
accessing files when booting into OS 9).

On the down-side, a lot of third-party Carbon apps can't work on a
System w/ UFS (the ones that expect resource forks, e.g., FreeHand 10),
and you lose the spiffy indexing features of HFS+ (makes Sherlock / Find fast)
