    How are the recovery options? How likely is it to blow up in your face? How do these answers compare to FAT and NTFS? Which is the optimal filesystem for USB loaders, if there is one?

    WBFS is as fast as FAT32 and NTFS. The games on a WBFS parition using more space. It's also easier to fix problems on a FAT32 or NTFS parition, because you can access them directly.

    I have a 500gb drive divided into 300gb WBFS and 200gb FAT. The disc usage is 130gb+15gb. WBFS is fast and stable and easy to handle (bash scripts using wwt). WBFS checking and recovering is available. No fragmenting probs on FAT because missing large file adding+removing. 1:1 dumping with cgf loader works perfect.

    I see no reason to change it.
