pretty good summary, but I take issue with the XFS summary statement, 
"If you really like to tweak your system to meet your needs, XFS is a 
great way to go.".    XFS requires no tweaking at all, just `mkfs.xfs 
/dev/vg_bigdata/lvwhatever` and mount and go. Its not suitable as the 
root file system for CentOS (mostly because Anaconda doesn't know how to 
set it up), but for data volumes, its king.    only caveat is, the 
system MUST be 64bit, and you should have a fair amount of RAM to ensure 
xfs_check can handle the bajillions of files and links likely to 
accumulate on larger volumes.
