    It's not quite ready yet, but let's wait another year and see how things stack up then.
    People have been saying that for several years now

      Yep, and people/distros are finally starting to use it. Once that happens, I think the remaining problems will probably clear up pretty quickly because people will start caring about them a lot more than they do right now.

      Anyway, i don't get the big deal. Use whatever FS you want. Who cares? Btrfs will either get better and people will start using it. Or it won't. End of story.

        No major distros are installing btrfs as the default filesystem. A few keep saying they will soon, but soon never seems to happen. btrfs just is not ready. It seems directionless. It lacks good project management.

          large random access file - like vm swapfile etc

          I never understood how this works with cow and snapshot functionality?

          Are there exceptions declared by filename?
          Is there a COW_MAX_FILESIZE defined in /etc or in the btrfs source?
