    Definitely. JFS has sucked bigtime in c’t recent test (a big German mag).

    JFS was the only FS that was thrashed by their stress test.

    Nothing I’d like to run a production server.

    Hmmm I will need to make some shares for windows machines.. so I guess XFS won’t be the most reliable solution, and after talking with a few people maybe not Reiserfs either.. Looks like Ext3 might be a smart choice?! Anybody know if there are plans to have the default filesystem ext3 anytime soon (now that redhat and (i think?) mandrake are choosing ext3 by default..)? Or perhaps another question.. is there any way to reliably convert these filesystems to another (a la fat -> fat32 ntfs) without backing up, format, restore?

    I had reiser in my home machine in two SCSI disks. everything was fine until…

    a bad block apeared in one of the units. luckly it was not on the root fs. I backed up the units and formated with ext3.

    reiserfs has almost no bad block handling, and some 2.4.x kernel will panic if a bad block is found in a reiserfs volume.

    If you have important data to keep, go with ext3. since it’s backward compatible with ext2 it’ll be much easier to find recovery tools to rescue a volume with bad blocks.
