Any experience with ReiserFS or JFS?

I read this benchmark and I see there that ext3 is slow compared with ReiserFS XFS and JFS. I plan to install FC2 soon so I want to try one of those filesystems. I learned FC2 comes with unsupported ReiserFS and JFS (no XFS?) and that I have to start the installer with a special parameter.
So let me ask this here:
Is XFS available anywhere to be used in the installation as JFS and ReiserFS?
More importantly, do you have any experience at all with any of those filesystems? Any input is welcome.

I read the same review, and I would say that this is not something you need to worry about. Ext3 is very very stable and solid, it may not be the fastest, but I think it is very nice. RieserFS is great but old.

Yes..yes.. we know that ext3 is stable, but it's slow. I'm waiting for reiserfs4 to be releast. It's superb
