i contradict this statement. this comparision shows what is important for the VERY most users out there when they install linux and want to chose a good filesystem to work. while everything that was mentioned above is correct it is not what most people know and are interested in. they want the faster one with default settings (not while tuning it with unsafe settings).

so i would say, this test is exactly what is needed, for the very most people!
