[opensuse] When not to use Btrfs for /home?
Hi All,

I was little surprised that openSUSE went with Btrfs for / but with XFS for
/home. So I have to ask this question: when and why I should *not* use Btrfs
for /home?

I've heard/read somewhere that Btrfs handles virtual machines badly, because
of huge random access disk file and COW nature of Btrfs, can anyone confirm
that?

What other use-cases Btrfs handles badly?
