JFS is lovely for a number of reasons, the main being stability,
very decent all-round performance and extremely low CPU-usage.

The main downsides are no shrinking possibility (at least in the
non-AIX incarnations) and practically a single part-time developer.

So recently I've been pretty much mainstream with ext4 – not extremely
stable yet in my experience, but lacking some annoyances of ext3 (like
very io-intensive deletion of big files and sensible fsck times).
