same here: I've been using it (almost) exclusively
on my home system (SUSE) since 2002 without problem
(the main exception being /boot). however, at work
I tend to use ext3, mostly because that's probably
supported by all modern distros. a compromise may
be, depending on yer usage/needs, to use ext3 (e.g.)
on the critical filesystems (e.g., root &tc), using
reiserfs on the "expendable" ones (e.g., spooling,
caches, frequently backed-up, archival, &tc)?
