      Call me when you implement the BTRFS partitioning available in OpenSUSE and when you allow adding the flags for BTRFS BEFORE installing the system and when the system allows you to use flags in fstab, as currently, the system will not start if there are any flags for btrfs in fstab .

        I do not understand Redhat. They stop supporting Btrfs in their enterprise distribution but want to make it default in their community distribution…

          You will understand it better if you realize that Fedora while associated with Red Hat has its own process and make their own decisions. This change was largely proposed by contributors to Fedora who don't work for Red Hat. Some of them do work for large organizations like Facebook which uses Fedora and Btrfs in large scale and have an interest in seeing it used widely

            I know this proposition does not come from Redhat, but I did not know that Fedora was independent enough to take decisions opposed to those of Redhat.

                What sort of "flags" in /etc/fstab are you thinking of? I use btrfs on most of my Fedora systems and all of them have various flags. My entry for "/" has a subvol=root,noatime setting, for example.

                  I think he was strictly referring to OpenSUSE installer.

                    I really hope there's a way to set compression since the very beginning (with Anaconda), so you don't have to compress everything AFTER the installation.
