I would not recommend XFS for a non-server environment. The performance
is only noticable in XFS with very large files. There is a slight chance
of data loss with XFS if you were to lose power or have a lockup. Reiser
would be the best for use at home and even on servers. We use it on our
production servers. Which are 4-way dual core systems with 64GB ram and
have a load of around 6 to 12 at all times of the day. Shows how much
usage our software does of these machines.
