    i had reiserfs on my box….but now i have ext3

    i rebooted during startup and it corrupted my partition table. i hadn’t printed out the fdisk -l info and couldn’t restore the partitions. there are many tools that support ext2 (and, therefore ext3), but i couldn’t find any that supported reiserfs.

    so now i use ext3.

    If your primary concern is reliability and future
    compatibility, I recommend being uncool and sticking
    with ext2. It’s mature, tested, and works.
    Since you’ve said that you expect this data to
    rarely change, journaling for better recovery after
    crashes becomes much less important.
