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."

From April, but the general consensus is that ext4 is the best overall filesystem.

And a big warning is there too. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RUN postgreSQL on BTRFS. The one real life example, btrfs chokes and dies on (doesn't crash, just crawls).
