I use XFS exclusively on all my machines (at home and work). This
includes several desktops, a laptop, a couple of servers and even my
firewall. I've been using it for at least two years. No other
available filesystem (well, I haven't tested JFS and probably won't
until I've got a 64-bit CPU) matches XFS for performance and
reliability. EXT3 is a joke (why *does* it need to fsck?), and
ReiserFS, although very interesting, has had numerous problems. My PC's
have been turned off, crashed, and even attacked by ferrets without
losing data or requiring repair. What more can you ask of a filesystem?
