My Powerbook G3 runs quite nicely with JFS. I wouldn't recomment ReiserFS to anybody - mostly because I've known too many people who've used it (not specifically on PPC, just in general) and had entire filesystems eaten because of it. It frankly amazes me when people recommend it, so I try to warn off anyone who asks about it. :)
