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)

I checked:
  -- 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...
