Linux Coming from a background of using MS-DOS for about 4 or 5 years exclusively (MS-Dos 4.1 or something) Being new to Linux and *nix in general I thought that I would want to learn from the "ground up". I did not want the bloat of Redhat or Mandrake but wanted something simple where I could learn the "stuff" of the OS.

XFS rock solid?

... erm, I think not. I had some major issues with XFS and various types of instability - I believe it's documented on the web in various places too...

That said, I also think there have been recent patches to the SGI XFS sources, to fix some issues. Perhaps it's all been fixed.

I'm using ReiserFS - no probs now. It was a pain to retrieve all my data from my chewed up XFS partition though!
