I'm defintely missing something in my assumptions. By its very nature, shouldn't GFS be prescinding from its application, as in every other filesystem?

Also, pls allow the ingenuous question, what number of applications needs ever to be cluster aware, if not a very strict one? Also, intuitively as it may come, should a properly written applicative be independent of the operating filesystem properties?
