     I use ext3, but fsck every 20 mounts is not, in itself, a valid
reason to switch.  See man tune2fs:

      -c max-mount-counts
              Adjust   the   maximal  mounts  count  between  two
              filesystem checks.  If max-mount-counts is  0  then
              the  number of times the filesystem is mounted will
              be disregarded by e2fsck(8) and the kernel.
