So, I'd like to hear your stories. What's worked for you? What hasn't worked? What would you consider the pain points with using btrfs?
I did not give it a try at all, sorry. Seeing the amount of bug fixes flowing continuously gave me the feeling that this filesystem was simply not ready. There is no data of mine that I am ready to jeopardize. Ext3 did the job for me back then, ext4 does the trick now (discard support convince me to change), I found absolutely no good reason to spend time and take any risk with another filesystem.
So, first and foremost, I'd need a statement that btrfs is now reliable enough (apparently you're hunting for exactly that) and also a comparison with ext4 proving that btrfs is better. And not just because it is new and cool and conceptually great - I want real-world facts.
And this is exactly the biggest problem with btrfs right now: perception. I understand where you're coming from, but this isn't the kind of response that's helpful. If the perception is to change, we need actual testing and corresponding bug reports if there are any. -Jeff -- Jeff Mahoney SUSE Labs
