Linux Ext4 is the latest in a long line of Linux file systems, and it's likely to be as important and popular as its predecessors. As a Linux system administrator, you should be aware of the advantages, disadvantages, and basic steps for migrating to ext4. This article explains when to adopt ext4, how to adapt traditional file system maintenance tool usage to ext4, and how to get the most out of the file system.

With ext4 you lose all the backwards compatibility for very little.

I thought ext4 gave you a big performance boost for free. I think it's nice that you can choose more performance or keep compatibility with old systems.
