I use ReiserFS. Unfortunatelly ext3 cannot be upgraded to reiser without deleting data. But it's good. After power failure there was no single complain (it was my test, not power failure). And is quite fast. Only 1% slower than in ext2 (on my machine).

A combination of reiserfs (for paritions that survived my hard disk crash a few months ago) and ext3 (for new stuff). I choose ext3 becuase it uses the same tools as ext2 and therefore has a more mature repair kit for when things do go wrong (being able to upgrade a mounted ext2 partition to ext3 is also nice!

Personally I use Resier, but one seriously big advantage of ext3 is that it is exactly like ext2. Should things go catastrophically wrong, you can always boot from something like TomsRTBT and mount your ext3 partition as ext2. So long as you then umount it again nice and cleanly, everything should be ok.
