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."

My guess is that after Canonical heard that MeeGo adopts btrfs as default, they hope that Intel and Nokia do the stabilizing work for them....

I didn't hear about MeeGo adopting it as default. Intel can probably be counted on doing a good job shaking out some bugs, but its not going to be widely tested. There is no MeeGo Market, and there won't be one before the next version of Ubuntu.

IIRC the first MeeGo devices are targeted for release in Q3 or Q4 2010 which is around the time Ubuntu 10.10 arrives.
This means that Intel and Nokia have a deep interest in joining the Btrfs development team to ensure its stability.
Both companies have capable operating system programmers. We can at very least expect some Btrfs patches from them.
