/ on xfs. I tender to try all kinds of new application, thus need constant drag to keep system performance

/boot on ext2, there is no point to run journal file system on /boot, since the files under /boot are barely change.
btw, I had a lot problem with latest version of grub when have /boot on xfs. It works sometimes, but very easy to broken with no obvious reason. Never have /boot on xfs with grub, although grub claim the problem has been fix, unless you want to experiment. Some distro only allow lilo when detecting /boot is on xfs.

all other on jfs. It is good on operating big files, best for mythtv, low CPU usage, but not particular fast in overall. However, most important, reading from a lot post, it seems the most power-failure resistant that is critical to my data.
