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."

Why do you even ask the questions here? Why would a MeeGo project member answer them here?
Do you always need someone to tell you what to do? I mean... seriously ... ask on that friggin' mailing list and not *here*! Got that?

But hey, because I'm a nice guy, I break down the mailing list thread for you:

Different MeeGo team members made it very clear that btrfs works better than ext3 in their extensive testing. They made it clear that btrfs currently has some problems, being currently relatively new (one problem they specifically mentioned is the increased space requirements that they are working to resolve), but that ext4 also has its fair share of problems problems for the very same reason and OTOH without even the benefits of btrfs' feature set.
