You remember KISS? Keep It Simple Stupid. By this reason I try hard to
keep my root filesystem on a real device.

Add to save file...


And to put cream on top of this all use btrfs! Yes, use btrfs. And
once again btrfs is the fs you like to use.

Scheduled for next 12.1 or Arch install...


b) snapper! wtf is snapper?

Start YaST -> Miscellaneous -> Snapper

@Arvin: Why is this not part of YaST -> Cool Stuff? Honestly why isn't
it part of YaST -> System?

Snapper is the hot feature of openSUSE 12.1 and even SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server 11 SP 2. See Greg and Matthias demo show at

That's a real big gig. Honestly it a long time back that I had been
impressed like this.

Thank you!

c) We'll make us of this with Samba

And to put more cream on top of it we're working on offering access to
the btrfs snapshots via Samba to Microsoft Windows users. All a user of
a Samba share has to do at the end is a right cklick on the folder in a
Microsoft Explorer window and from the properties window you'll have
access to the btrfs snapshots like you're able to access native
Microsoft Shadow Copy snapshots. See if you havn't used this before.

Hurry up dangit! This sounds good...

Thank you Lars for the great info!
