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."

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.

Ok, I understand that, but there won't be the wide spread user testing that always shakes out bugs. Again, I'm not bashing Ubuntu, its just different then the way they've done things in the past.

Fedora already does that.
