i really like reiserfs.  all of my future
boxen will be running it.  

the downsides i've heard about:

1)  it's not as good as ext2/3 with big 
    files; and

2)  it doesn't recognize big (>130gb) hard
    drives.  (or maybe the limit is 80gb.) 

otherwise, it's wonderful.

is it "risk-free"?  --  given the above 
limitations, probably not.  

would i use it for a production box?  
--  yes, because i'd be conscientious
with the backups.
