Definitely shoot for CentOS 6.3 ...

XFS with a kernel _more recent_ than 2.6.36 (currently shipped with
CentOS6) has more improvements to the XFS code.  Youtube video on XFS
[0] - I believe the kernel version noted is 2.6.39 (watch the video!)
[2].

And there's also a Youtube video on BTRFS [1] that was linked
to/shared by Fernando.
