which filesystem for /

I need a reliable+fast filesystem for root and boot partition.
It will be used in Debian x64.
So far I only tried ext3 and ext4. What do you reccommend?

(this has been probably asked many times, but I need updated information)

ext4 has better performance than ext3. ResierFS 'was' good but it's a little old and was replaced by Reiser4 (still in -slow- development).
