SubjectRe: ReiserFS? How reliable is it? Is this the future?
My Linux boxes are 99% Reiserfs (I work with 2 small ext2
partitions - the rest are Reiserfs partitions). Some things
I have noticed:

The good (2.2 kernels):

* No problems at all using Reiserfs 3.5.x on 2.2 kernels
* Speed improvements using Reiserfs and squid
* No NFS problems
* Rollback of logs is extremely fast vs. fsck

The bad (2.2 kernels)

* Nothing I can think of

The bad (2.4.x kernels):

* Some corruption problems with various 2.4.x kernels, but
people are reporting ext2 problems, too, so this is
probably due at least in part to IDE/PCI chipset issues
* Some corruption problems if an application
uses an nfs-mounted reiserfs partition during
an unexpected shutdown of the nfs server

The good (2.4.x kernels)

* Reisefsck --rebuild-tree works fine for me
when I get corruption problems

I haven't used Windows to do any work in years. Just
games.
