Hi. I've just been reading Distrowatch, and frankly it's got me a bit worried as I've been using ext4 for almost everything recently;

http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20121105#qa

Has anyone seen this article, and if so, should we avoid ext4 for the time being?

Which is the best file system to use other than ext4, especially for save files and hard drive installs? Ext2/3? XFS? Reiserfs?

Thanks in advance,

CP .

Yeah, I read that article too, and I'd like to know as well.

Ext4 bug - No need to panic!
by Oliver Diedrich

Much ado about an ultimately irrelevant issue: a bug in the ext4 filesystem has turned out only to be exposed when several exotic options are combined. Apparently, the problem has only affected a single user. ==>

Thanks for clearing that up. It seems it's much ado about nothing as is often the case.
Best,
