I think this is the 2nd time you've asked something that is covered in
the Handbook. Possibly you haven't gotten to the section yet (it's
under Chapter 3):
Scroll down to "Benefit of a single file system" and read from there.
P.S. -- Just because learning BSD is more difficult doesn't mean BSD is
better (yes, you read that right). Every operating system has its pros
and cons. Please keep that in mind.
