This is for a laptop. I would like to know which is the best choice between ext3 and XFS. No Reiserfs, thanks anyway. This is a dual-boot configuration, Linux=hda2.
The main concerns are first reliability/stability, second speed/overall access performance.
The kernel is 2.4.22-xfs from Knoppix 3.3, but will soon be compiling 2.6.x.x.
System will be general purpose workstation & tailoring the Knoppix installation.
Probably no db use or server, though that could change.
My experience is ext3, but I'm interested in XFS and any advice from experience.
