Whats the best filesystem for a complete linux newfag?

ext4

ext4. Everything else there is archaic and ancient. Only other modern hard disk filesytems that matter are zfs and btrfs, and only btrfs will actually ever come to linux.

Just a reminder that Hans Ext4 murdered his wife.

Yet xfs is the standard on RHEL/Centos 7, scales better than ext4, and there is still active development.

XFS sucks balls on desktop, because it can't handle dirty shutdowns/reboots (e.g. power outages) very well. Expect data loss.

>>52359294
JFS is often overlooked but why not give it a try? It's not like it matters that much what FS you use. It has following advantages compared to rest:

- Hipster cred
- Survives crashes in better way than XFS
- Hipster cred
- IT'S ENTERPRISE AND MADE BY IBM!!!
- Hipster cred
- It just werks.

JFS is GPL

UFS
Go to BSD

Depends. Are you dual booting with Windows, because ntfs may actually serve you better
If the answer is no, use ext4

If I install linux in sn SSD, should I have a swap partition? Will it kill the SSD?
>>
>>52359740
JFS is also way lighter on resources for older systems. If you're using something like an embedded ARM platform that requres FAT32 or ext2 to boot from, just use a small, separate /boot partition and then JFS for /.

swap mitigates the risk of freezing by an OOM condition so it is important. Be sure of setting vm.swappiness=0
Visit the ArchLinux wiki for more infos. Most of the knowledge there applies to every distro, so don't worry

This has been fixed with new metadata checksumming algorithms.

>>52359294
ext4, don't run ntfs on a linux, you'll just come running back here when something doesn't work and we'll just tell you to screw off.

FAT16
