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 works for me

I'm using it exclusively on a Mandrake 9.0 box. No problems so far. I remember that, when using a mix of filesystems - ext3 for /boot/ and /, xfs for /home and /opt, reiserfs for /var and /usr, on Mandrake 8.1 ( maybe 8.2?), the system was unbearably slow.
I've not tried mixing and matching filesystems since.
