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."

I wouldn't want it to necessarily be the default version right off the bat, give it a couple of release, get some feedback and then make a determination.

THat's exactly what Canonical is doing: Wait for Oracle, Red Hat, and the parties involved with MeeGo (Intel, Nokia, Novell) to do the stabilizing work on btrfs and then pick it up without getting involved in the actual stabilizing process.

If (and only if) btrfs is stable enough for 10.10, Canonical will pick it up. If not (because Fedora 14 and possibly even MeeGo 1.0 is released after Ubuntu 10.10), Canonical will wait until 11.04 or so.
