Well SuSE ships with XFS and SuSE tends to be really good about testing.
Better than RedHat IMHO. Just the fact that RedHat uses ext3 as the default
is a black eye.

XFS has been around a LONG time, and on Linux for a couple of years now.
Plus I believe it is the default FS for all of the really high end stuff 
SGI is doing
with Linux.

I would (and do) trust XFS currently over ANY other journalled option on 
Linux.

Sincerely,
