    In my expierence XFS, was right after JFS the worst and the slowest
    filesystem ever made.
    Since than, I am using reiserfs 3.6. I don't need quota for my servers,
    but there is patch avaliable for it I belive, from SuSE.
    ReiserFS is da most reliable FS for linux (with journaling). If you
    don't need journaling, ext2 is da choice.
