    I do not think it would happen at all.

    ... Market share? Well, I do not see why it matters ...
    It matters definitely, if you claim, "I only a few years time, BTRFS will be on every Hard Drive".

    It would not happen this way, but if there will be demand, some day someone can try to create driver like it happened with EXT4. However, btrfs is far more complicated and so it is less likely to happen and would take far longer if someone would dare to pick up such task. Earlier IIRC Apple explicitly rejected idea to support ZFS in MacOS X. I do not know what caused them to make this decision but its really up to them.

    It matters for one who makes such claim, but it do not have to matter for others, most notably, devs, FS users and so on.

    And if we're about filesystems for removable storages, MS preferred to be utterly uncooperative. They created exfat which isn't anyhow noteworthy from technical point of view, uses ancient disk techs, etc. Yet it is patent-encumbered and requires to pay royalty. Isn't it cool to pay for ancient and outdated techs? So MS shouldn't complain if others do not want to cooperate with such vendor at all.
