I  too  had bad  experiences  with  ReiserFS  years  ago when  it  first
came  out  and  unfortunately  it   has  left  me  scarred.  Files  just
randomly disappearing and entire directories throwing errors and causing
excessive hangs just didn't do it for me. While ext2 may have to fsck, I
have never lost data due to filesystem problems on it. I now prefer ext3
on Linux systems. As for XFS, never had the itch to try it.
