XFS is hardly experimental; it has been the primary filesystem for SGI's
IRIX operating system for over a decade.
JFS is somewhat newer, having been developed for IBM's OS/2 operating
system within the last decade and more recently ported to linux. But
IBM has many, many years of experience designing filesystems and JFS has
certainly benefited from that.
