It is hardly to find something that is "best" by everyone standards of
"best". Maybe ext3 is better suited for your particular setup, or maybe
is reiserfs what fits best to your configuration. Just now the features
of each filesystem, do some "real-world" usage or test on both, and
decide for yourself.

You will have to take into account those existing and missing features
of both filesystems and see if you absolutely need one of them that is
not available in one of the two. Maybe it would be nice to have support
for quotas and ACL on reiserfs, but if you don't need these features,
why bother ?. Stick with what is best for _your_ needs.
