Btrfs. - GNU/Linux
simon
I need to know if anyone is using btrfs yet? As its default in fedora 18 It must be stable enough?

Bit late, but hell, someone may find it useful I'm using it for about an year now. It runs on SSD and few plain old HDDs. Everything is fine, even after having few power loses. No corruption. Online defrag and scrubing works well. I miss few features ZFS has (options per subvolume).

I used btrfs since Jan 2012 on all of my desktops. At first it was slower then the other file types but now with kernel 3.12 all my systems fly. And once you tune your parameters it is the fastest file system I found for my my old Hitachi HDD. Opensuse will also switch to btrfs by default for their new OS release.

I thought they already did so with the latest version?

It will be default for 13.1 + 1, but right now for 13.1 they just have a dialog box pop up during install to ask the users if they want to make the switch to btrfs. That will be gone in the next release.
