Great experience in recovery of disaster filesystem problems on XFS. A 
switch to another FS costs a lot of time, and why switch if it works 
great? And administration comes down to mkfs, mount, maybe xfs_fsr, in 
disaster xfs_repair, and sometimes xfs_growfs. Basically nothing.

Also, this list has been of great help during the years, whenever there 
were problems they got fixed. That's ease of administration :-)
