I used "to swear" by ReiserFS for a few years on my home desktop,
including through a few power failure, until one day I tried to shrink
it and lost all data.

I now stick to ext3. It's good enough for anything I need on my
desktop, it doesn't require extra hoops to jump through in order to
install (I think Debian installer supports it but I don't use Debian
any more) and I feel comfortable enough to play with it.
