Oh well! It's not just that, the fact that Grid installation refused to use fully functional GFS2 file system irks me beyond belief. Oracle is getting more and more proprietary. First, they refused to support OpenLDAP, then they de-facto killed OCFS, then they de-supported GFS. I hate virtual machines and installing software on them but I will apparently have try that. Virtual machines are the biggest performance killers ever invented.
