[plt-scheme] Mac Versions

I've been running under the UFS (unix file system), but ran into an
application that only runs under the HFS+ file system.

If I were to switch to the HFS+ file system would PLT-Scheme be happy?

I'm sorry if the next question is a bit off topic, but I know a fair
number of folks on this list are MacOS converts: Any comments about
using UFS vs HFS+ in general?

Many thanks,
