Btrfs was called the “Next Generation File System for Linux” by numerous major kernel developers two years ago and is still labelled as experimental. For Fedora 16 there will be a “simple switch” from Ext4 to the new file system; therefore Fedora’s installation program will not force Btrfs’ RAID- and LVM-like capabilities onto users."
