the only thing i didn't like about xfs back when i tried it, was that i couldn't
make a duplicate of a filesystem and have it mounted at the same time.
i backup to another hard drive with dd, and i wanted to copy some files
back that i had hosed. with xfs, i couldn't mount the second filesystem
at the same time as the first. as soon as that happened, i knew i
wouldn't be using it.

I used ext3 under Red Hat, and now Reiser under SuSE. My question is: What are the advantages of reiser over ext3 and xfs over either ot them. I hardly notice any difference.

you'll see the major differences when doing big operations of the same
thing, like deleting 5000 files in a directory, or untarring 10000 files, which
are still in the memory disk cache.
i was playing with stuff like that a year ago, and with stuff like that, you
could occasionally see differences of 5-10x on some things.
some will be faster on copying a really large file. for normal use, you'll
just feel little differences.
there's a few places, like at namesys, where you can look at big sets of
benchmarks, seeing what the different fielsystems are good and bad at.
