True, not the best proof, but opening that mail folder on ext3 takes
only a second or two with mutt, and opening it on reiserfs with mutt
takes 30 seconds or more. ext3/maildir is a fast and reliable mail
folder combo - the main reason not to go with it is simply if your
IMAP/POP daemon, delivery agent or MUA doesn't support it, in my humble
I trust Microsoft. 
I trust them to be spectacularly unable to get anything right,
including and especially hard things like large-scale industrial
espionage. Sure, they'll make clownish, clumsy stabs at it and fail in
predictable, amusing and embarassing ways, and then do it all over
again. And their victi^H^H users will not only forgive them but spend
a lot of energy making up excuses for them.
