Benchmarks The choice of filesystems on Linux is vast, but most people will stick with their respective distributions' default choices, which will most likely be ext3, but you're free to use ReiserFS, XFS, or something else completely if you so desire. Things are about to change though, with btrfs just around the corner. To bridge the gap between now and btfrs, ext3 has been updated to ext4, which adds some interesting features like extents, which are already in use in most other popular file systems. Phoronix decided it was time to do some performance checking on ext4.

Exactly my the same beef I have with them. Many options can be set for various diferent filesystems each of these effecting thier performance. In a production server environment, the defaults are usually going to get changed for maximal performance on the desired workload.
