I haven't run either extensively (meaning on heavy-production machines), but
I've got a few desktops and light servers with each.
I've had absolutely no troubles with XFS, and the RedHat 7.1-XFS installer
ISO makes life really easy.
Once installed and running, I've had no troubles with Reiser either.
However, Reiser did *not* get along with some SAN hardware I was testing...
it absolutely refused to mount a partition I created.
XFS is the more mature of the two filesystems, having been around on IRIX
for years, but its integration into Linux is more recent than Reiser.
Here's a decent overview of a number of journaling FS's from Freshmeat
(includes Reiser and XFS): http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/212/
