Re: Recommended linux file system?

Reiser is great for lots of small files

XFS is great for smaller number of large files with lots of write ops to
them, and recovers really fast (and accurately) from "bad" events

ext3 is the universal file-system, takes forever (comparitively) to
recover from "bad" events.

I use all three, depending on distro and hardware. Only one "data loss"
event a long time ago on ext3, but that may have been due to a bug in
the AlphaServer version of the code I was running back then (2.4
kernel).
