    I am a big fan of XFS, and it's my go to filesystem for most things. My /home is XFS, and all my extra storage hard drives is XFS. I've been thinking about going with an XFS /usr too. /boot is Ext2 though, and the root partition is Ext4. I love that I can pick and choose filesystems so freely in Linux.

      If you're using the gcc family compilers, you really should look into the -pipe option. Or failing that, just put /tmp on a tmpfs. Or do both.

        If I format the partition with this option, will I be able to mount it with a 3.12 kernel?
