I tend to encourage people to pick ext4 over ext3 on modern hardware
and software.

Aside from some clear performance wins for not-that-uncommon workloads
(deleting lots of large files, storing large images etc) there's the
fact that most of the attention upstream these days is going into ext4
- - the earlier ext* file systems are pretty much in maintenance mode today.
