I spent 3 or four hours reading the flamewars between hans reiser, alan cox, chris somebody all about the virtues (or lack of - depends on who you believe) of reiserfs. After all that time the only real decision I made was to confirm my reiser setups are correct and that my UPS is still working. Nothing I read convinced me to change and I like the future direction of reiserfs (encrypted fs).

IMHO:[list=1][*]reiserfs - has been rock solid on my SuSE distro 7.1 and up.[*]ext3fs will be the future for RedHat (tested in roswell - anybody???). It's a wise choice for them as it's easier for them to support due to its downward compat with ext2[*]reiserfs from any other distro needs to be tweaked and tuned and tested. according to the list most of the distros use paranoia and checking which slows down the process severely.[*]the collective wisdom sez that the reiserfs 'notail' option is probably safer.[/list=1]

I have been using ReiserFS on LinuxQuestions.org for quite some time and it has been rock solid. I use noatime and notail mount options.
