With the upcoming Jaunty jackalope

it'll be time for me to do another for for a clean system....

I'm looking at other options apart from just the default ext4 filesystem however, I have been hearing good things of the later reiser filesystems and am thinking about that instead...

the reason I'm posting here is to ask if there are are issues I should be aware of here?

I don't know if you've read any of these, but you may find them useful if you haven't.

I don't know much about ReiserFS as I've never used it, but I hope this helps.

hmm thx for the info I had seen a couple of those, actually that bench mark is what got me looking into reiser in the first place...

but from what else you posted, it looks like reiser might not actually have a future, oh well, more the shame the benchmark results were impressive to say the least

IMO, unless you are going to create then delete 10,000 1 Kb files, you should choose a file system based on features, not benchmarks :p
