You're right. I'm also considering switching to ext4 (home pc) with
f11 but i don't wan't to spend time figuring out what's wrong if
something really goes wrong.  there are othe threads in the enternet
but no ditro is shipping with ext4 as default. And I'm wondering if
it's so much better then the good old ext3.
