What are the pros and cons of using ext3 and/or ext4?  Can they be mixed in a dual boot situation?

That is the first place I checked.  I guess I am looking more for a personal answer based on experience.

based on experience.
Well, my personal experience is that they do what they are supposed to do.
And that is store (my) data.
There is no more for me to tell Grin

Let me rephrase the question a little  -- Why are some distros still using ext3 when ext4 is mature and offers some advantages.  The increased number and size of files does not factor into the average user's requirements.  It must be something else.

According to a recent discussion on one of the Ubuntu mailing lists, grub1 will not boot out of the box from ext4. Some distros (including Pardus) patch it to allow boot from Ext4, others don't.

Thanks, James T.  That grub1/ext4 thing did not come up in anything I saw.

What is GRUB 1
It is a slang term for the old grub and is also written as grub(1) in order to distinguish it from grub2.
