Parent article: POHMELFS returns
So, in place of the old POHMELFS, which had no use case other than 'just like NFS, only better, look, you can take an existing filesystem and distribute it across the network instantly!' (I'm not sure I can think of a more common use case), we have... this, which requires you to shift all your FS data onto new storage which cannot be accessed without pohmelfs.
Not an improvement, sorry.
I think I'll try out NFSv4 one of these days. Maybe it's got inotify support now. I'd really like something NFSish ('take an FS and make it distributed, you don't need a cluster or special fabrics or anything like that') but that is closer to POSIX and also preferably supports inotify so that modern KDE and GNOME versions have a chance of working properly if your home directory is exported over it.
