So, I'd like to propose that we use btrfs as the default file

Sorry, but if you read the roadmap more carefully, you see that
we're way past the time to change important details as that. For
convenience I include a pointer:

You're free to offer your help to the marketing team to promote
btrfs as perfect choice for experienced users and we switch early
for 13.2. That's the best I'm willing to offer.

At the moment you can't even install factory with btfs as default
because of bugs as bnc#835695

Btrfs is really young ;(

Maybe you'd care to read the rest of the thread before commenting?

Well, taking that at least 3 colleagues were not aware of that problem, I felt
raising its visibility was needed. Actually all btrfs tests were failing since
I remember:

It used to look like this:

And now it looks like this, but it's actually the hard link problem (and yast
not being able to cope with the exception):

So bluntly we have 0 install experience with btrfs in openSUSE Factory. In
early July
you asked for complaints and you got some - and now the opportunity for 13.1 is
gone IMO.

We've been discussing enabling this by default and I have a patch set
that will allow the installer to enable it dynamically on a mounted file
Yeah, such things you do to get a feature in if your early tests fail, but not
if you
consider including a late feature.
