Linux "Btrfs holds the promise of giving Linux many enterprise class file system features similar to ZFS but with even more features and better performance. In fact, many Linux experts think that btrfs is one of the keys to the future of Linux. While btrfs is not quite ready to be your only file system, it is in the kernel ready for testing and is still undergoing very heavy development. In this article we will introduce the key features of btrfs find out how it compares to existing file systems."

Zack and Valerie, as much as I respect them, are not the primary authors. I'm not certain whether or not they are even contributors. Zack may work at Oracle, but the only btrfs developer I have ever heard from, or heard mentioned, is Chris Mason. (Although he *has* thanked Zack, on occasion, for "his ideas".) If Chris, the author, says "Better", I say "Better".
