If I sent out a survey to my customers asking their opinion on reliability vs performance on filesystems, I already know what they would say. Reliability over performance: 100%. Performance over reliability: 0%.
I don't believe that is true. If you ask them then sure, they will pick reliability but in actual operations they will performance first most of the time. Witness the popularity of MySQL/myisam which makes that exact trade off, if reliability was the most important thing everyone would use PostgreSQL and no one would have even heard of MySQL. What people actually do and what they say are often diametrically opposed.
