XFS was developed by SGI a while ago and has been in Irix for a longer
_time_ than any of ext2/3 and reiserfs (not sure on jfs.  ext2 probably
has had more instances ever run, but I digress).  This speaks for XFS's
rock solid stability.

As also mentioned here, terabyte filesystems and proper ACLs are included.
 Important stuff.  I'd be installing XFS be default if anaconda had it.
