I din't try XFS; I forget the specifics but there seem to have been
problems.  Even on my 486, JFS is pleanty fast enough.

I looked more at the motivation and purpose behind the developers.  IBM
needed a fs that was solidly reliable and would recover quickly and
gracefully from a server crash so that the server could auto-reboot and
get serving again.  They wrote JFS.  Their needs matched mine well.

On IBM's website and I think an article in the LinuxGazzette there was a
comparision on various benchmarks.  JFS was a solid performer all
around; better than ext3 in most cases.

Thanks a million for the info Douglas :-)

Kind Regards
