Vote for xfs as well. Had some corruption that turned out to be faulty 
hardware. (IBM replaced pretty much the complete inside of my server)

I like xfs, specially with quota. (and using acl's here as well)

with xfs you never have to run the check_quota (or whatever the command 
is...) This makes a rebooting after a crash *much* faster.
