I wanted a journaling fs for two reasons:
-- fs must be ok with sudden shutdowns (think: laptop running out of
-- fs must not fsck on boot (think: shutting down your machine once too
often, then wait 30min before you can use your computer)
-- reiserfs but they still call the code experimental.
-- xfs which has been proven to work for a couple years.
Easy pick. I don't mind using beta releases or even alpha stuff but
not with my file system...
