The latest Debian release, called Woody doesn't supports XFS officially,
but you can use a solution[1] made by a developer.The reason is very
simple: Stability first, features[2] after.

If your choice is: Features first.Debian can solve your problems too,
but you need do some job with your own hands, or use the unstable
branch.It's more safe to all users.

This subject isn't about "Stability x Features" and/or "Debian x
Mandrake", please don't damn me about your own way and your own choices.
