And I understand it has even been raised to 17.6TB (16TiB) now.
That's _not_ what I'm talking about.

But lack of a good set of safe, trusted user-space utilities for the
filesystem are.  Red Hat offers a non-filesystem utility, star.  That's
not good for enterprises.  And the more Red Hat tries to distract people
from that, the more they are denying what they cannot offer.

That's _exactly_ the self-defeating marketing I'm talking about.
