Again, that was another thing I read a lot about. People talking about
various systems and why they are better or worse. A lot of people were
talking about ext4 being bad because of (I think it was) the
journaling and how that wears the drive out a lot too. Some people
said go with ext3, others said ext4 with the journaling disabled. I
just ignored all the fuss, used ext4 normally (I did NOT disable the
journaling or otherwise optimize it) and it's been fine.
