The Sound and Graphics have arguable unpleasantries (though all platforms do).
The scheduler isn't optimal for some workloads, but it's also not bad. Compare it to the windows or Mac scheduler both of which regularly do really unpleasant things for both server and workstation workloads.
The filesytems are 100% fine.

See http://lwn.net/Articles/350072/ and in particular the link to the University of Wisconsin paper linked within the thread - they looked at reiserfs, ext3 and JFS, and how they cope with disk failures.

Just make proper backups and do not assume that any filesystem is going to keep your data, especially if you stress it enough.
