I have to agree - I've been using a combo of reiser and jfs for the
past 5 years as different parts of production systems, and I find both
to be fairly reliable, and much less annoying to use than ext{2,3}.
Unfortunately I'm not sure where to go from here on out for the
future, as JFS *does* seem to be on a dead-end path, and reiser4 isnt
even close to being standard (then again, even finding a JFS supported
live cd can sometimes be a hassle).  I have a severe dislike for ext,
though I haven't looked much at 4.  Anyone have suggestions?  ZFS
looks interesting, but I've heard mixed things of it in practice.

FreeBSD has had ffs2 for a while and OpenBSD is just bringing it into
the main there (I guess they figure its secure enough now) which solves
their fs>1TB limitation.  Can Linux rw ffs2?


What is annoying about ext3? Not looking for a religious debate, or which is better then the other, just asking/ "and much less annoying to use than ext{2,3}". I find the fs to be transparent for day to day use. What annoyance? What horror have I missed?
