[Discuss] Linux file systems

This group is great, I learn so much from it. ?I like the different opinion that everyone has, makes it more interesting. ?At the?beginning I was not too specific about where I would utilize these system structures. ?This group brings another interesting point, what is the best file system for different?applications. ?If I had to build a new server for production environment, what would you suggest as partition and file system.

Thanks again,
Aldo ??

LOL.?  ;-) 
ext4 is the most stable and least buggy option available to you.? That's why it is the default for all distributions.? Unless you want to suggest that every distribution maintainer is a bumbling group of fools.

Other filesystems are good in their own way, but ext4 is currently "the standard."? You should only go to another filesystem, for now, if it has some characteristic you care about that ext4 doesn't offer.? For me, this generally means snapshotting.? I evaluated btrfs about 2 years ago with poor success, but I am guessing it's probably good by now.
