    Ext 3 is always good and stable to use. It is what I use on IDE Platter drives (Laptop 2 1/2" or Desktop 5 "}.

    What about ext 4? Isn't it better than ext 3 since it's an extension of it?

    I don't know. I don't run Deli or Ext 4.

    Welcome to the forums!

    You really should try both if you want to know which is best for you, your hardware, and your choice of Linux distribution. That said, I too run ext3 on all my machines.

    I've been running ext4 since it was marked stable in kernel 2.6.28, without problems. I've definitely noticed a performance gain, and it shaved a few seconds off my boot time.
