On /usr, as you can see, I've got 181,653 files with room for a
couple million more. This /home can handle 10,720,975 files--not
that I can imagine how I'd wind up with that many files on any
filesystem I'm responsible for.
Put all those files into a single directory, now, and you're
probably asking for at least a bit of trouble. Look at Squid for
one sane way of dealing with a lot of files; search the archives
and Google for more discussion.
