    Agree! Although BTRFS is terrible in the Compile Bench - Initial Create benchmark, which I guess is not too bad from a user's perspective because you rarely have to create files in daily desktop...

    BTRFS is slow as ****

    So let me see... BTRFS is slower than EXT4 pretty much everywhere, sometimes MUCH slower. All the purported features of BTRFS that are supposed to make BTRFS better are pie-in-the-sky as far as I can...

    BTRFS apologists proven wrong

    BTRFS apologists love to make excuses as to why BTRFS is slower than EXT4 by claiming that the more numerous features of BTRFS invariably yield slower function on bread-and-butter filesystem tasks....

    Steal from *BSD?

    Why not use BSD-licensed code from one of the BSDs that support ARM?
  6. BTRFS is competitive

    I fully expected to have a reason to bash BTRFS's poor performance, due to how slow it presented itself in previous benchmarks. But I'm pleasantly surprised to note that BTRFS beat EXT4 in several...

    BTRFS sucks

    Sorry to say it, but what's all the excitement about BTRFS when it sucks so much compared to EXT4. Why would any desktop Linux user in their right mind chose BTRFS???

    Fold into radeon driver

    What should have happened was to fold the r128 driver into the radeon driver, bringing a whole bunch of benefits at once. Alex Deucher had a whole tree dedicated to this, which to my knowledge was...

    BTRFS worse than EXT4 for both speed and reliability

    OK, so let's talk reliability. As it stands, BTRFS is much more prone to corruption and gradual degradation of speed and even available free spance than EXT4. Just look at all the reports of people...

    They already are! The codecs are packaged by themselves under "FFMPEG-ugly". There's nothing stopping distros from having GNASH and FFMPEG installed by default, and prompting users to install...

    Why don't distros install GNASH or Llightspark by default???

    Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse pride themselves on having only FOSS software. But why don't they include GNASH and/or LIGHTSPARK in their default installations? They don't have to install US-patented...

    Showing off on real hardware?

    Can Wayland run on real hardware without piggybacking on top of X? How about hardware whose drivers aren't capable of 3D (Poulsbo, some Nouveau cards, VIA, ARM, etc)?

    Dynamically choosing the appropriate scheduler, out of the box?

    I wonder how long (if ever) it will take for the kernel to implement hands-free selection of the best scheduler type (ie. if there are three rotating and one SSD, select CFS). Unfortunately, this is...

    USB

    A very important part of Grub2 is the ability to read and boot off USB. This allows Coreboot and old computers whose BIOSes can't read USBs to boot.

    BTRFS sucks for most relevant benchmarks - SQL

    Why does BTRFS suck so much for the SQL benchmark that matter most to desktop users (ie. can be directly traced to the performance of firefox's website database)?
