XFS has nice features and very good and consistent documentation. Note
that it can only be expanded larger and not smaller (some consider this
as showstopper).

Beside that I've never experienced any major problem on XFS/EXT4,
however on OpenBSD I already had several files in /lost+found after a
power failure but you can't really choose something else yet.
