ZFS, which unfortunately is not much of an option for
you Linux folks I think.  ZFS works great with thousands
of users, no worries about getting "inodes" or partitions
right and snapshots make keeping weeks of recovery points
online in the pool trivial and cheap.

I am sad every day I work with filesystems that are less robust.

I have btrfs on my desktop and hope it will mature.
