Not sure if you should support, but here is on reason why I am
using XFS as root fs since many years now on Debian (not
Debian-Edu). The reason for me is, that it need no fsck on startup
also very much more unlikely to break in case of power loss. I
think you search automatically for alternatives if you
maintain servers without console, monitor or thousands of them.
