I have seen a lot of arguments of which file system is the best .. a lot of tests .. but since this forum has a lot of users, and i didn`t find anywhere poll like this one, i have decided to find out which file system gentoo users prefer.
Of course a lot of users have their partitions formated with different file systems, personaly i have used only reiserfs, but i`m planing to reinstall gentoo and put ext3 and reiserfs. And after some reading, i think that i would give my 2 cents to tuned ext3.

Cheers

playahater,

ext3 for large fs and ext2 for /boot, since a journal is not requited on a small fs.

I gave my vote to xfs, which I'm using in my root partition, though I know that if it isn't cleanly unmounted it can void all open files (never personally run into that though); as for reiserfs I've had awful experiences of random corruptions.

Bye
