I know this is a little of topic, but I want people ideas and opinions.

I currently have a samba server with approx 1300 users. During the summer I am going to upgrade this server as its been up for about 5 years. At the moment it has an ext2 file system for the drives containing peoples work, etc. I was wondering if people can suggest a better file system to use than ext2 as I believe this is getting dated (but stable).
