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?


For crying out loud, this is hard work!

Because you posted that quote in response to a comment someone made on here about BtrFS not being ready so I was making a point that you're post was no more helpful than the comment you were originally criticizing.

In fact, let's get back to the start (and with some heavy paraphrasing):
original comment: BtrFS isn't ready
your reply: someone told me it's more ready than Ext3 so your comments aren't helpful
my reply: care to elaborate or are you just going to leave us there with an equally unhelpful post?
your reply: it's all in the link. I'm not going to help beyond that.


All I wanted was some data to back up the comments made. Something tangible and conclusive. Instead I've read nothing more than faceless techies arguing non-quantities.

[edit]

I take that last part back: ggeldenhuys has provided some real figures and studies.

Thank you ggeldenhuys ;)
