JFS shares codebase with JFS2 in AIX and sees a lot of development and 
maintenance there. Filesystems can be tricky from a support POV, especially on 
large production systems. The upstream provider is pretty picky about 
filesystems, even if you go for one of the 3rd party supported ones like JFS and 
OCFS and you have reasons for choosing them.

There are more to filesystems than speed.

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is evil.
The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
