I'm a big fan of the reiser, though I didn't know that the performance of databases on reiserfs wasn't what it could be. I'm wondering if it's truly not good (compared to others) or just not what he wants ti to be? I toyed for a while with reiser4 till I learned that it wasn't ready for 2.6 (at the time). I couldn't figure out why it kept hosing my system.
