I have 5 production servers all running reiserfs with no problems. Three
runs SuSE 7.3, one runs SuSE 8.0 and one runs SuSE 8.1. All systems are
single servers in small businesses handling all of the normal chores. I
also run reiserfs on my main desktop system, Redhat 8.0, also with no
problems. The SuSE 7.3 systems have been running non-stop since the
release of that version of the OS.
