TMPFS disabled default

**Why don’t you use TMPFS or similar?**

For stability reasons, we don’t use any tpmfs (memory-based storage) for caching or otherwise, as it introduces more instability, possible data loss, and doesn’t necessarily improve performance. What people people don’t realize is Linux already uses tmpfs for its own purposes, and already stores many “requests” in RAM. Best to let the operating system do its thing, and we optimize the software packages installed.
