Reiserfs runs better if you have files that have small sizes. So MySQL 
could run better on reiser; since it is a "small" database ;-)

As far as I've tried, Red Hat family (RHEL, FC X ) and FreeBSD are the 
optimal OSes.

For Linux, ext3 seems better, but under some circumstances ext2 could run 
more stable. Check pgsql-perform list archives for more discussions on 
filesystems on Linux.

Umm... I've been testing PostgreSQL on Linxu 2.6.X for a long time under 
heavy load. I don't have the benchmarks, but I can say that many things 
runs faster and faster on 2.6 than 2.4.
