There's really no advantage in using anything *but* ext4 out of these:
ext2 and ext3 are essentially older, less-journally versions of the same
idea. There might be a niche that could favour one of the older ext*
FSs, but I haven't found it.

And here's me old enough to remember the extfs/xiafs war, too. Not that
age adds anything here but an increasing inability to read small print.
