Talking about the BSD family of free operating systems.
True the ext2 file system is not journaled and neither is soft-updates but it has been my experience of *ALL* Unix OS's tried, the ReiserFS offered in Linux is the most crash resistant of them all. And the XFS and JFS file systems are the fastest of all yet, you have to run fsck to rebuild them after a sudden power loss. With ReiserFS, I've never had to do this. I've actually lost my entire FreeBSD install during heavy use with soft updates. The file system was not recoverable.
