Thats called spreading FUD. If you don't know, you don't know, so why
say it? I've heard plenty of horror stories about ext2/ext3, xfs, etc
ALL losing data...

The fact is, I've been using reiserfs on numerous boxes for many years
with ZERO problems.

The biggest issue is unclean shutdowns, but that problem is not unique
to reiserfs, and can be minimized/eliminated by being smart - using
battery backed up RAID controllers (if you're using hardware RAID),
using good UPSs, using UPS s/w to cleanly shutdown a system before the
UPS battery dies in the event of an extended power loss, etc...

Anyway, this is completely OT...


Best regards,
