I made the mistake of putting XFS as / once and paid for that for a
few months. XFS is very slow with small files. Specifically deleting
small files takes a lot longer on xfs than anything else. Also xfs
does not check your filesystem at boot and this can lead to corruption
causing an non bootable system.

I have not seen that yet.
