Of all the journal filesystems available today, ReiserFS, is the most
developed under Linux. While IBM's JFS and SGI's XFS have been around a
lot longer, they are still in an prenatal stage as far as the Linux OS
is concerned. Ext3 has also quite a way to go. So, for now, our choice
of a journal filesystem is ReiserFS.

The article also appeared on linuxtoday.com :-(

Now, i'll not discuss the affirmation in itself, because it's an obvious
false. I just wonder why such articles appear?...

There is a response in the bottom of the page about xfs support from Bryan Smith which also says that this article is not entirely correct.

The article is probably not even based on actual practical use or even testing the available variants.

Every program has two purposes
one for which it was written and
another for which it wasn't
I make the last kind.
