    Actually, I recently read on the Linux-Kernel mailing list that Marcelo plans on having xfs in the main kernel as soon as he sees it stable in -ac. So, your pessimism might soon be wronged 🙂 Or so, lets hope, I really like XFS!

    The performace of ext3 is slower, because in the default setting ext3’s journalling

    is more conservative than XFS’s!

    ext3 uses data=ordered per default, this menas the metadata are written after the disk says it wrote the userdata to disk.

    XFS on the other hand uses a journalling mode like data=writeback, which only journals metadata.

    Thus, ext3 is slower than XFS unless “tuned”.
