    Well, there's not much to say about ext2 vs ext3, except that ext3 adds journaling support to ext2.

    Filesystems are a pretty objective thing; each has its particular strengths for certain applications, which are laid out on Wikipedia. You're not going to hear people saying "I don't like such-and-such filesystem because I had a bad experience once with it, but this other one has been good to me." Except in the case of using vfat as a shared filesystem between Windows and Linux, since it has a 4GB file size limit, which some Linux apps find unacceptable. In that case, you can use ext2 and get a Windows driver to read/write to that filesystem.
