XFS vs ext3 vs RieserFS Filesystem choice


I by no means intend for this to start a flame war.

After playing with Fedora for a while now, I have decided to make the permenant switch (ie replace my WinXP partition) to Linux. I have played with both Mandrake and Fedora, and think I will go with Mandrake. The real choice for me is which filesystem I should choose. I am leaning towards RieserFS, but don't have a great understanding of the differences between these Filesystems.

Yes, I've done some web searches. No, it didn't help.

What's everyone's opinion (backed up with facts, please)?
