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.

Too bad about the micro card. Maybe tomorrow.
My concerns are about power outages or if for some reason a "hard reset"
may be required.

So far I have had no problems after the box powered off with overtemperature problems.
Th wiki you mentioned mentions 2.6.32 and 2.6.35 kernels which are pretty ancient now. There have been many updates since and even one in the latest 2.6.38-rc8-git4 kernel released today.
