Right. I still don't think *anyone* would agree with "XFS doesn't
solve problems", but rather "XFS didn't solve your problem". What's
the difference? The first can easily be interpreted as "XFS sucks",
but the people making the statement mostly haven't touched XFS and
won't touch XFS and don't have much of an opinion other than maybe
"XFS doesn't fit elegantly with the Linux kernel".

A subtle difference, but an important one.
