Submission + - Finally Linux get Btrfs (

shifting_control writes: "At its IRC meeting on Wednesday, the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) resolved to use Btrfs as the standard file system in Fedora 16 “Verne”. 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."
