Fedora Core The latest Fedora development snapshot makes Ext4 the default file system and adds experimental support for the next generation btrfs filesystem. "According to current plans, version 11 of Fedora, which is expected to arrive in late May, will use Ext4 as its standard file system. That's what the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) recently decided, following a heated discussion in an IRC meeting. If however Ext3's successor encounters big problems with the pre-release versions of Fedora 11, the developers will dump that plan and revert to Ext3."

This is great news!!!

Will mean that there is a high chance that RHEL6 will use ext4 as a default file system.

If you are in a corporate environment then you will use RHEL6 rather than Fedora because as mentioned in a few comments you have to treat Fedora as a beta type of operating system.

RHEL 6 will have Ext4. This was confirmed in the Fedora Eng team meeting by Ric Wheeler, kernel developer and filesystem team manager for Red Hat
