For me it's been quite satisfactory.

Quick suggestions (if you are of the GNOME persuasion) include using
openbox instead of metacity and epiphany instead of firefox. They are
much lighter and faster. Also, put temp directories in ram, which I
think I've already mentioned to you.

Quite separate from your query about ext2 maintenance, you should keep
in mind the gotcha I found with ext2, here:

My yucky workaround is to change the filesystem in my fstab back to
ext3 before each kernel update and change it back to ext2 afterword.
