I'm involved with the setup of replacement hardware for one of our 
systems. It is going to be using Ubuntu Lucid Server (kernel 2.6.32 I 
believe). The issue of filesystems has raised its head again.

I note that ext4 is now the default for Lucid, what do folks think about 
using it: stable enough now? Also xfs has seen quite a bit of 
development in these later kernels, any thoughts on that?

Cheers

Mark

P.s: We are quite keen to move away from ext3, as we have encountered 
its tendency to hit a wall under heavy load and leave us waiting for 
kjournald and pdflush to catch up....
