I too had serious corruption with reiserfs, but this was back before it was
even in the kernel or the userland tools were complete/working... so even I
take that with a grain of salt. Then again... all it takes it one instance
to piss off a guy enough to form a hard opinion :-D I've had nothing but
good experience with ext3 so far. And FWIW, the partition I'm using is on a
disk shared with WinXP, and the one partition holds all of RedHat9, so I'm
sure that's very much related to any slowdown I'm getting.

These were only (some of) the files written in the (30?) seconds before
the crash, so I guess XFS just doesn't play very well with write caches

Sorry, I meant "about much more severe file corruption *with reiserfs*
(almost whole file system trashed)".
