    I'm pretty excited about ext4...hopefully they'll focus more on stability once it goes into the kernel.

      Looks like a developmental version of ext4 is included in today's release of the newest kernel: 2.6.19

        im still using ext2 on my slow laptop hard drive. went for that over ext3 to loose the journalling overheads and hopefully gain some speed.

        i was tempted to try something more exotic (reiser,xfs) although its reassuring to use a mature and well supported fs with plenty of tools available. hopefully ext4 will mature to the same standards.

        i may be paranoid but after an incident a few years back, data loss really scares me

          I haven't had the time to try out ex4 yet, but if Fedora Core 7 is going to adopt EXT4 for the default format that must mean something about the rate at which it is progressing.
