XFS is the best filesystem.

Sorry, but saying/writing that does not make it so.


Different filesystems have their strengths and weaknesses and those are also different under different circumstances.

Where xfs may be fast given a number of factors, you will find that other filesystems will excel after a change or two in one or two of factors.

eg: Large directory hash in a fileserver.

You might find where nfs/smb clients = 8 then ext3 wins BIG time but where nfs/smb clients = 16 or higher, xfs excels and widens the gap with a ext3 based filesystem as the number of clients grows.

There is no perfect filesystem.
