Just a general poll for us Linux geeks out there. What's you're favourite Linux filesystem, or which one do you use right now? If I missed any, please state so in the thread.

I use ReiserFS personally, because it's journalized and faster than ext3. Only problem is there are not as many tools available for defraging, etc.

I'd like to try XFS as it's faster than Reiser, but the only problem is it's really slow to delete stuff.

My preference would be ext3, being built on ext2 it is stable and well tested, plus it is journaling. Online JFS (VxFS) is good too especialy on a system that has to have a very high uptime.
