Take note I'm running factory and have the latest version of e2fsprogs and a

It sucks :-)

I did some benchmarks for some time, not only throughput, but also
responsiveness (with Ted Tso's fsync-tester), and ext4 is still behind xfs.
It handles a lot of very small files somewhat faster than xfs, but that's it.

I'm using ext2 for my boot partition and XFS for all the rest exclusively.

I use the partition I changed from ext3 to ext4 for backing up my home
directory etc when I do a fresh install and for storing dvd isos, its
basically stuck on ext3 for the life of the hard drive. Converting it to
ext4 is the only thing I can do otherwise it would have been xfs a long
time ago.
