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."

RE[4]: Why?

"Yeah right.
When did Ubuntu start using Grub 2?

I believe it was Ubuntu 9.10 where Grub 2 was first time default for all new installations.
Confirmed. I remember when I installed ubuntu 9.10, made wi-fi work by downloading and compiling a non-broken package from using a separate computer running windows, discovered that there was still no sound after updating everything, said "oh, well, that's why I install ubuntu releases on a separate partition after all", tried to modify GRUB settings in order to make it target my "old" 9.04 partition, and discovered some strange config file in a syntax which I didn't know of with a big warning on top of it telling me not to edit it.

9.04 used GRUB Legacy, hence GRUB 2 appeared with 9.10.
