I am about to install openSuSE 10.2 on two new computers and see that

advice as whether to accept the ext3 default or to go with Reiser as I
have in the past.

The reiserfs will likely not get improvements, that's all. If it has
worked for you in the past, you can just keep using it as safely as
before. I use it.

In my experience, reiserfs is not safe. It frequently fails
(corruption and/or file loss) in the event of improper shutdown
such as power failure or system crash.

In defence of Reiser - what version was that?

I had many problems with just the above in 9.3. Once I upgraded to 10.0, the
problems went away.

Of course, when I build my 10.2 laptop, I am using EXT3. I'm still using
Reiser on my upgraded desktops - one of which has been running since 9.1 on
