I installed with Reiserfs back when everyone else was using Ext2. Reiserfs has never disappointed me. I live in an area that can suffer power failures (usually in winter) and Reiserfs always recovers.

I like ext3. I really want to play with the external journaling options that it has but I don't have room in my case to add another hard drive :x I thought about maybe using a usb stick for the external journal but I am not sure if the throughput would be high enough. Can anyone comment? Also I would have to make sure the usb stick is mounted before the hard drives I am guessing. Not sure if debian mounts ubs first or what on boot up..... :D

<---- JFS (if only to morally support IBM in their legal fight with SCO).

Did you bootstrap your Debian install? I am trying to think of another way short of (possibly) remastering the Debian install CD.

Yes I remastered the Debian CD. Was very hard and a lot of trial and error, but it's worth the effort.

Ext3 for all my partitions. I try out different distros so the others need to stay compatible if I need to mount them from within another.

Ext3, but only because I don't know what the difference is :(

To sum up: you should use ext3 unless you have a good reason not to. You should also not consider "speed" as the only factor in choosing a filesystem, just like you would not consider "speed" as the only factor in deciding what car to buy.

Nevertheless, here are some pages of interest:
http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/388
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/articles/l-afig-p8.xml
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems

It might be interesting to have a parallel poll about whether or not users actually chose their filesystem or whether they just accepted their distro default.

I just dont like how long it takes to format 4 partitions in ext3 during install...when XFS or JFS take like 2 seconds to format each partition. That and l337 d00dz use XFS/JFS/ReiserFS :D
