Sure - more channels, more converter options.
And correspondingly more expensive.  If you actually need
more than 8 channels, there aren't too many other options
(unless you can figure out how to correctly link a pair of
delta 1010).

Reiserfs was actually the first journalling filesystem
available for linux.  Reiserfs 3 is rock-solid.
You're probably thinking of reiser 4 which is not as
widely deployed yet, and has a web page chock-full of provocative
and mystifying ideas ;-)
