Alternatives/replacements for ReiserFS

ZDNet has a blog post regarding alternatives to going-to-die ReiserFS . The review mentions several open- and close-source file systems which can be used as the OS' main filesystem.

Next, if you are looking at implementing file system, or you have a task to virtualize access to files across several devices, you will find Callback File System, a component for creation of virtual file systems, indispensable for your tasks.
