Are you sure you want to do this? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Upgrading for the sake of upgrading is usually not worth it.  If you are
a member of this list, or other linux type lists, you will see numerous
problems after "upgrading" this or that piece of software. Often, things
just stop working! Better to spend the effort solving real problems or
providing new and better services (IMHO).

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).
