  1. Hi, Excelent show I really like what yo do.
  2.  
  3. I'm thinking to by a new Oryx pro mostly for cloud developing (openstack, vms, containers etc.) and 3D modeling for 3D printing, and also for some gaming. I do have extra 2.5' disks and 1 m.2 SSD so I will have plenty of disks, and I would like to use ZFS on them. I tried LVM as volume manager before on a similar laptop and performance wasn't good. I like archlinux mostly, and they have plenty of documentation that I can test. But I'm new to ZFS and most of the time I read that ZFS works perfectly on Freebsd, but this is a laptop made for linux. I want to take advantage of the m2 ssd as read/write cache.

  5. What would you recommend me to do when installing this new system and if ZFS is too much for this and just keep using LVM on ext4 but with better configuration to improve performance?

  7. Again thanks alot
