No offense, you could port ext3 too if you like...

My company has 20s nfs servers(6 250G RAID 1 units), currently use
SuSE9 w/XFS. I used ext3 on some but got long time fsck headache(Yes,
I have data=journal in fstab, but journal will fail under heavy load).
So personally I prefer XFS.

BTW, thank Craig Rodrigues, Alexander Kabaev, Russell Cattelan and all
others for porting XFS to FreeBSD, it's a good news for community. We
need a journal FS on FreeBSD so badly!
