I haven't used ReiserFS in production. In practice it's supposed to do
intelligent block management to maximise the capacity of your storage.
For example - if you specify blocks of 4k and your files end up being 1k
or smaller the ReiserFS system will still used the remaining space
within each block - very cool indeed! whereas in the extended filesystem
you would potentially loose 3/4 of your storage capacity if your file
ended up being 1k or less. But read the links that have been posted and
make sure you test/test/test :-)
