    Ok: Assume that i've read the mke2fs manpage and added more inodes to
    my filesystem.

    So: What happens if i need to grow my filesystem by 200% after 1-2
    years? Can i add more inodes to Ext3 on-the-fly ?

    A filesystem with a fixed number of inodes (= not readjustable while
    mounted) is ehr.. somewhat unuseable for a lot of people with
    big and *flexible* storage needs (Talking about NetApp/EMC owners)

    Why are a lot of Solaris-people using (buying) VxFS? Maybe because UFS
    also has such silly limitations? (..and performs awkward with trillions
    of files..?..)

    Ext3 may be a fine and stable Filesystem and works well for a lot of
    people. But there are also a lot of people who need 'something' better
    like: VxFS, WAFL and Reiser4.

    Btw: Do you know Adics 'StorNext Filesystem' ?
    IMHO Ext3 will never be able to do such things...
    But with Reiser4.. .. if someone wrote a plugin .. ;-)
