I am running XFS and REISERFS. I have my root XFS because I read some things
about reiserfs not being too robust with bad block sparing and it scared me
enough that I changed from reiserfs, also no more files with NULs in them.
Read about some people losing entire reiser file systems on the list.

I wish I was running a JFS root just to give a virtual finger to The SCO
Group. If Darl thinks it infringes on The SCO Group then I am all for it. :)

Best Regards.
