I use Reiserfs and I like it. It is said that it's good but I don't know. I don't think it matters that much for all day use. Just make sure you use a journalised file system. Ext3 and ReiserFS are journalised, Ext2 is not. Journalised == No hd check that will take forever after a hard reset or some other bad reboot.
