Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "UDS is over! And in the customary wrap-up I stood up and told the audience what the Foundations team have been discussing all week. One of the items is almost certainly going to get a little bit of publicity. We are going to be doing the work to have btrfs as an installation option, and we have not ruled out making it the default. I do stress the emphasis of that statement, a number of things would have to be true for us to take that decision."

They just changed to Ext4 as the default in new installations of 09.10. Why would they switch so soon, especially to something not so ready?

To quote Arjan van de Ven from Intel who works on MeeGo:
blanket "it's not just ready" not based on actual arguments are a bit useless to me.
we've been using BTRFS in all builds for a long time now, and frankly we have had more
issues with the ext3 side of the world than with btrfs ;)
