Nice tip on the "linux reiserfs", I had not noticed that one. I'll
have to try it with "linux xfs" and/or "linux jfs" as well ;-)

I used to use reiserfs pretty heavily, but moved them all over to ext3.
Reiserfs (v3) is really fast, but it does not deal with corruption at all.
I've lost a couple file systems, it was pretty ugly.

I've see corrupted ext2/ext3 partitions, but I've always managed to
fix them and/or get the data back off.

That said, I will be moving at least my proxy servers back over to 
reiserfs. I'm thinking long and hard about the mail servers, but in
that case I may just throw more horsepower at it.

Reiserfs v4 is just around the corner... ;-)
