BTRFS and Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve seen a few comments that raise the 
| concern that Ubuntu might do to btrfs what 
| some feel they did to PulseAudio â undermine 
| it by introducing it to the âmainstreamâ 
| before it was ready. I know I personally have 
| a poor opinion of PulseAudio based only on 
| initial exposure through Ubuntu. I wonât 
| claim thatâs Ubuntuâs fault â but I have 
| certainly heard that argument put forward.


Btrfs and the Ubuntu spin machine

,----[ Quote ]
| Alone among GNU/Linux distributions, Ubuntu 
| has managed to project the impression that it 
| is the best first choice for someone who 
| wants to test the Linux waters. Put this down 
| to slick media management.



MeeGo and Btrfs

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo is arguably the dark horse in the
| mobile platform race: it is new, unfinished,
| and unavailable on any currently-shipping
| product, but it is going after the same
| market as a number of more established
| platforms. MeeGo is interesting: it is a
| combined effort by two strong industry
| players which are trying, in the usual slow
| manner, to build a truly community-oriented
| development process. For the time being,
| though, important development decisions are
| still being made centrally. Recently, a
| significant decision has come to light:
| MeeGo will be based on the Btrfs file system
| by default.


Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the benefits of Btrfs besides offering
| competitive performance against other Linux
| file-systems and SSD optimizations is its
| support for sub-volumes and writable
| snapshots. While Btrfs is still in
| development and is not yet used as a default
| file-system by any Linux distribution, Red
| Hat has been looking to capitalize upon the
| capabilities of Btrfs by introducing support
| for system rollbacks into Fedora. The Btrfs-
| based system rollback support has been a
| feature for Fedora 13 so with the release of
| the Fedora 13 Beta earlier this week we
| decided to further investigate this feature.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
