Another opinion: I always use ext3 for no particular reason but that
it is compatible with ext2. Performance? Can't say I care, and I
really can't tell that ext3 is any slower than ext2. When I'm on that
airplane I'd rather have battery life than speed anyway (guess I
should be using ext2, huh? ;-)
I can say that ext3 is super reliable - I've had a 2.4.18 686 (Woody)
kernel with all but root fs using ext3 up for over 370 days now as a
work group CVS/web/jitterbug server.
