In addition to what Steven replied, many people reported data loss using
reiserfs in the past. The reiserfs maintenance tools often make a crash
situation and recovering even worse. Well, if the man developer (Hans
Reiser) himself states that over all speed is above data
security/integrity as a development goal ... What will you expect then?
I once lost data and never touched reiserfs again, sharing this
experience with many others.
