I consider that FUD. We have many ext3 filesystems >2T and the run ok. Sure we
do disable automatic fsck on reboot but we schedule a manual fsck when we get
the opportunity. IMHO automatic fsck on reboot after, say, 30 boots is a pure
desktop/laptop thing. When you have servers that stay up you'll have to plan
for fsck anyway.
As Joshua wrote, there is no filesystem more supported and tried on CentOS...
