    btrfs is doing everything that should had been done long ago. I have it in my 4 hdd raid 0 and never had a problem. There's been 3 or 4 blackouts in the last year and not a single file lost. Although even with lz compression it still seem a bit slow, cant get past 250MB/s (600 MB/s with ext3) reading and synaptic takes a lot (relatively speaking, about 7 sec) to load the db which with ext3 it was almost instant.
    Next time i reinstall the os (probably mint with mate or LMDE) i'll most surely switch to raid 5.
    with btrfs + raid 5, and i dont think that i'll ever have to worry about losing anything ever again in my life. Although i wish the was some gui util or something to set mdadm raids easier, setting everything manually is not hard but it's always the same and it's nothing a 1 bottom + 5 radio boxes app couldnt fix :|

    Until data gets deleted by bugs, software, or user mistake.
    Or until the power supply blows and instantly kills all your disks simultaneously.
    Or until your computer gets stolen or house burns down.
    Or until lightning strikes the electrical grid and toasts your computer.

    You need remote off-site data backup.
