[mythtv-users] ext3 to xfs conversion worth it

I finally got around to converting my root partition on my combination 
frontend/backend mythtv box from ext3 to xfs running on FC3.  Deletions 
of recordings were taking forever with ext3, and they are much faster 
with xfs, just about instantaneous.  In general all disk access seems to 
be faster, but that may be my imagination.  If you are running ext3, I 
would highly recommend you switch filesystems!
