Would someone please post a note explaining all this? What is
statelessness? Is it good or bad? Why would someone care?

I think the original posting asked for an explination of the
differences between RFS and NFS. A good question, worth answering.
But, please in English and please in terms of a user, or
administrator, or purchaser, too. (As well as academics.)

   Thanks,

P.S. Can someone please expand this discussion to include a user's
(and/or administrator's) perspective on NFS vs RFS vs NewCastle vs
rcp-rsh-rlogin? Particularly, which can co-exist on the network?
Which take up the most resources? the most administration? Which
are easiest to use? Which presents the least pain at malfunction
time? etc? Thanks.
