Backups should always be there anyways. :)

I wouldn't trust any of the journalled filesystems till they have some
matured.  Resier has been around for what, one year or so?  Still if you
have to go to one, I'd trust the one that most people are using.

Well if it's donated it's definitely going to be cheaper.  As for faster
it depends on the equipment they get donated.  If you get  scsi RAID
it should do for most purposes.  You're only problem might be support
if something gets broken.
