I've been using ReiserFS for about a year now - a journaling filesystem that
runs on linux.  SuSE has bundled it for a while now, even before it was part
of the mainstream kernel.  I'm personally fairly interested in XFS because it
appears to have working quotas - something that I was at least unable to find
in Reiser...

I'll tell you what, it's *really* nice to only wait a few extra seconds while
a journal is played back after a power failure.  Sure beats waiting for 60GB
of IDE to fsck. :)
