    Reiser also had horrible problems with being exported via NFS in some older 2.4.x (<=12 maybe?) revisions. Even if the export was read-only, the filesystem would get corrupted and/or kick out errors in kern.log. I still have some reiser partitions, mostly for lack of space to convert them, but I much prefer ext3 also. The tools (e.g. e2fsck, tune2fs) are better and the design more mature.

    Actually, its not. So I re-did some of these tests as per the above comment (the user actually sent me some email) and the conclusions remained the same.

    As I said in my email to this person, use whatever filesystem you want. I took filesystems readily available in the latest “stable” kernel and ran tests on the same hardware with no fancy tricks. ReiserFS was the fastest of filesystems I tested. If/when ext3 matures and is faster … I’ll use it ….
