geom changed this complications definitely, using gmirror or gstripe commands
is easy as copying a file. Probably one of the most important things that
with vinum as example it was not possible to mirror a root partition but
since gmirror places the metadata different we can have now a mirrored and
bootable root partition. Striping with ccd and vinum or mirroring was
certainly a pain even if it worked then stable and reliable. So in comparism
the easy use of geom is great and the people which developed geom did a
really fantastic job.
