If I remembered correctly, JFS performs better in IO throughput than ext3/ext2. Meaning JFS has faster read-write. Also JFS partition can be resized as needed, useful for LVM -- thus could qualify as enterprise filesystem.

XFS is better in big files read-write than JFS but it is not came resizable so not useful for LVM.

Now I don't exactly remember result JFS vs ReiserFS, maybe others will fill us in. ReiserFS is resizeable though.

I haven't read ext4 reviews or head-to-head comparison, BTW.
