I know, same here.  Back when I first chose reiserfs, it beat ext3 hands
down.  However, in the interim, ext3 has at least caught up, and passed
resierfs in several categories (such as SMP performance, important with
todays dual-core CPUs).  I'm slowing switching my boxes all over to ext3
as I get a chance.  No reason to frantically change them now, but also
no reason to do new reiserfs installs either.
