Well, just because it's offered as advice, doesn't mean you have to take
it. JFS is a good filesystem. I use it in various capacities. I
/used/ to use reiserfs in those cases, but with the whole problem with
Hans, I've dropped it like it was on fire.
I personally like ext3, but I've been really digging ext4. Even
experimentally it's just as good as any other filesystem of those types.
But back to the topic. JFS is a good filesystem. Use it if you want.
I don't see it as good advice or bad advice. Just advice. The
performance of the filesystem really depends on your hardware specs, so
Personally, unless you're dealing with HUGE filesystems
(multi-terabytes), ext3 is just as good as any of them.
