File systems choices
I'm at a point where I'm about to format a new hard drive into my desktop workstation. I've been using Reiser for ages with no real reason except that it was the default FS when I last formated a hard drive and its ability to efficiently store lots of small files.
The journalised FS choices I have are ext3, ReiserFS or XFS. Any compelling reasons why I should chose any one of them? Bearing in mind that it's a desktop system dealing with a lot of small files, a few large ones and various uses. I occasionally run it as a web server but not more than a dozen users at anytime.
I understand that Suse are moving away from Reiser, although I don't know why. From what I've read ext3 seems a good middle of the road solution. So I'm leaning toward ext3, any reasons why I shouldn't?
EDIT: I've decided to go with the pack and use ext3, although XFS was a close second on the economy on space, big file and big tree performance issues.
Thanks everyone, smoke 'em if you got 'em.
