2.6 noticable improvement

Here's a quick noticable improvement I've noticed in Kernel 2.6 over previous versions.

If someone FTPs ISO images off my (cheap, IDE-based) desktop machine, then it still remains usable and responsive. Nice.

SGI XFS in Fedora Core 2 (woo-hoo!)

I read that Fedora Core 2 will have XFS in it out of the box! At last!

ext3 always feels a little clunky (although I've no evidence for this) compared with XFS. I've never tried JFS and Hans Reiser, although a genius, is an arse. I'll stick with what I know.
