One of the things I've been following closely on Phoronix is the development of btrfs. My understanding is that it is intended to have a lot more features and be at least as fast as ext4. Unfortunately, every time I see performance comparisons, btrfs is still slower than ext4. In fact, relative to ext4, btrfs seems to be getting slower. I realize this is partially because of regressions and partly from ext4 getting faster. I'm curious what others think about it. Will it catch up with ext4 on the desktop (as opposed to servers and mobile devices) and eventually become faster or will it always be behind?
No announcement yet.
