I'm aware that ReiserFS is a higher performance filesystem than ext3, but ext3 is still generally the standard, so it's a more thoroughly tested filesystem by sheer user base, kinda why Microsoft advanced so much in terms of stability with their most recent OSs, the user base found their problems for them, the best test lab in the world.
Unfortunately, I still don't feel as comfortable with ext3 or Reiser as I do with NTFS 5, even though I think Linux systems are more fun for people like me who love to meddle in stuff...
