Changing to JFS filesystem

After I’ve read of the ugly bug in the linux kernel(3.4 to 3.6)that affects ext4 filesystem losing data,I’m thinking of changing to JFS!Any disadvantages with this filesystem?I know only that the real downside is that it doesn’t shrink!I’ved used it before and I really liked it’s performance(so I’ve seen the advantages)but did not used it for a long period of time,so any input would be great!:expressionless:

Have you really read the report? Why do you think it affects you?

No installation support.

Please read the articles. Even the kernel maintainers have a hard time to force the bug to appear.

Do you use ‘umount -l’? If so, do you shut down without waiting for the
unmounting to finish? If the answer to either question is “NO”, then the bug
will not affect you.
