One of the differences is how much of your data might be left after
an unexpected power failure or kernel panic, for either RSFS or XFS.
(I dunno about JFS, but its design is similar in at least some ways.)


P.S.  I use JFS on my Myth data filesystems because of
ext3 deletion is slow and Myth's slow-deletion wasn't an
option when I started.  I use ext3 everywhere else.
