I've had concerns about the stability of ReiserFS for a long
time, which was one of the reasons that I went to XFS instead
of Reiser when I lost a huge pile of data in an EXT3 failure.
However, I do know that we have several servers at work that run
Reiser, and I haven't heard of any problems resulting from the
choice of filesystem. So, maybe it's improved.
