I didn't find anything here about wich is better so I thought I would just ask.

I'm gonna install Fedora 1 on my laptop wich has a 30GB hard drive and I'm thinking about using either ReiserFs or JFS but I don't know wich is better for that job.

What do you recommend ?
I just want it to be fast, there aren't any critical files on that drive except for my websites I'm working on for my school.

As I understand it...

Reiser is better tested (more widely used) & more suitable for a general purpose desktop by design.

JFS is equally good design but is less tested (less widely used) & more may be less suitable for a general purpose desktop by design.

See for yourself, Google it.
