Using flat text file as storage instead of proper SQL database, we have two main problems usually: data security, and data extraction efficiency. In this update, I mainly focus on the latter.
As a performance test, I generated 500 test posts automatically, and the result was BAD. The Pages took a very long time to load. The main reason for that was all the plugins and index page tend to load all the posts files into memory and process them in every page request. Reading a big file into memory isn't a problem, but when there are a large number of files, even small files, it just takes forever to open them.
