Hi all,

Will we be seeing btrfs as the default file system in the next

Which purpose would it serve?

There's really a lot's of area where btrfs will become usefull. ( some of them
are only avalaible in ZFS actually )
But there's a lot of place to get it stabilize first. and missing important
tools like a fsck like :-)
Actually (My last check was one month ago) if a corrupt appear, you loose :-(

So I wouldn't see that as a default filesystem in openSUSE yet.

ZFS would be great. Too bad Oracle owns it.

Going back quite a while there was an article comparing ZFS and BTRFS. When mature BTRFS seems a better way to go.
It was saiway back that Linus was using BTRFS as his root filesystem. I have ha it as a backup of my systems for a long time. On the Beagleboard (ARM) I shall be using it tomorrow as my root filesystem on Ubuntu ARM - as usual, while I was out today, the postman left a note to say he couldn't deliver my new 32Gig micro SD card I need to try it out.
