(much snippage) - over on the mythtv list, you'll find that there are
more than a few people (including myself) that have been using XFS with
CentOS for *years* without problems.  XFS is better than ext3 when
dealing with files in the sizes of hundreds of megs and possible a
couple dozen gigs... (deleting a 60GB file on ext3 takes a *while*...)

That being said, RH doesn't support XFS and would rather one used ext3.
But this is CentOS.  We have -plus here, and kmods for those who want to
use it... remember - it's all GPL...
