On a slightly different topic, i feel the machine to be little slow at times, i happened to choose jfs instead of ext4, could that be the cause?
I did a JFS installation on a new SATA SSD hard drive a while back. I was thoroughly disappointed with the speeds. They seemed about on par with my ancient ATA/133 20GB consumer drive. I don't know if this was directly related to JFS choice or not, but JFS certainly did not give me the benefits that I was expecting it to.
I think JFS would work well in a specific environment. As a fairly normal desktop user though, I did not present it that environment.
