To each of their own. I experienced constant Kernel panics with
ReiserFS 3.6, which was using LVM underneath with both 2.4+ and 2.6
kernels for about a year. The machines went hi-wire regularly after
month or two until I finally had the time to reinstall and change the
FS to reliable ext3.

I didn't loose any data though, but the panics were annoying, when not
even pulling the power cable dind't reset the machines. I have to
unassemble batteries.

These were laptops servers - think about built-in UPS support :-).
