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 is by far the fastest and the best file system. Although, IBM's JFS is not that bad either and pretty speedy. But what ever, I've been using XFS for a good while and it works great. ReiserFS gets too slow if you have large files but is pretty good if you only have small ones. As for Ext3, it's just ext2 with a journal. So in conclusion, yes, XFS is probably the best one to use...
