I've been using XFS and I've been pretty happy with it. You also might
want to search the archives because I remember reasing a comparison of
different filesystems and how fast they were. I want to say Reiser was
the fastest but was the slowest at deleting files. XFS seemed like a
good decision after reading that article.
