I use reiser because:

(1) there's no filesystem corruption or fsck'ing if the 
    machine dies
(2) it's more space-efficient than ext2/3
(3) it's fast
(4) it's relatively mature, with established kernel support
(5) it's great at letting you know if you have flakey 
    hardware  ;-)

See for more of the sales pitch.
