Reiserfs used to be stable enough and performance overhead was not
really noticeable (I'd reccomend 2.4.7 and 2.4.9. Never 2.4.5).
I had the great idea (tm) of rebooting with a previous kernel version,
and the journal was lost, mangled or whatever. So was my data. MP3s
became HTMLs and so on. There were files I couldn't ls or delete, even
as root, but I could move them around. Weird.
Reinstall and back to ext2. No big deal, I find it stable enough ;-) and
don't trust journaling anymore ;-) This is my little trauma.
Please share positive journaling experiences so that I can overcome it
