Yeah, Slack started making reiserfs (I think) the recommended option
around v8, and the default shortly after. It performs much better than
ext2/3, I find the journalling to be much more robust. But I usually
add ext2 and others as modules (I always customize the ekrnel), bc you
never know if you have to recover a drive or something.

What were you doing formatting floppies at ext2? Never heard of such a
thing. Never paid attention, as I use floppies only when forced to....A
