I use JFS and am quite happy with the performance. My only issue is
if my box goes down unexpectedly (power out or something), it doesn't
always come back clean. I need to run fsck.jfs before I can mount
them again but I never have a problem after running it. I wish there
was better support for checking for these errors on boot and
automagically running fsck.jfs if needed.
