XFS has been pretty stable. I've seen one instance of FS corruption on
an XFS filesystem, that was recoverable using xfs_repair.
My gut feeling from lurking on lists is Reiser has more bad stories
overall, but ext3 has more **recent** bad stories. For some reason I
don't hear much about XFS at all... either no-one is using it or it just
XFS also significantly outperformed resier in our benchmarks (over nfs),
and has apparently performs better when dealing with very large files
(*cough* ZAPP zodb *cough* ;))
