Dear Folks:

Perhaps I am wrong, as I'm certainly no expert, 
but I seem to recall that HFS+ was not yet 
recommended for non-server (client) boot volumes. 
I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it's currently 
most appropriate for non-boot vols. and raid 
arrays at the moment.  I will see if I can dig up 
the relevant information in the next couple of 
days.  My understanding is that case sensitive 
HFS+ is part of a metadata transition for the 
future and is not quite ready for prime time (I 
believe due primarily to limitation of Finder app.

Arstechnica is one place where I recall a 
discussion that touched on this, though I don't 
think all of the info re. the appropriateness of 
case sensitive drives is there.

I'll let you folks know what I dig up (if I can 
recall where I just recently saw this!).
