    Phoronix: Fedora Cloud 35 Looking To Use The Btrfs File-System By Default

    Fedora Workstation has been defaulting to the Btrfs file-system since F33 while other editions of Fedora Linux have continued using their defaults. With Fedora Cloud 35, this cloud spin of Fedora is now also looking to migrate to Btrfs...

    Fedora Silverblue has also been defaulting to Btrfs ever since F33.

      Too bad they aren't going with ZFS.

        ZFS is a second-class filesystem in the Linux world due to its license. On the other hand, btrfs is more flexible.

          It's nice to see Fedora get on the BTRFS train, personally I've been using it for over 3 years on my openSUSE Leap and Tumbleweed systems and I'm happy with it, never had any problems.

            That has next to no relevancy. It's no different than "ReiserFS was made by Hans Resier" or "We shouldn't use that KWin fork because it's from that guy on Phoronix". About the only issue is the license and, frankly, that's irrelevant. That's no different than the Nvidia kernel module -- something with an incompatible license that installs itself as a module; open or closed source doesn't matter.

            As far as being installed by default, probably not a good idea, but having the option is no different than Ubuntu and other distributions offering things like restricted extras and codecs and whatnot in the installer as an optional, non-default, feature. Let the user go "I choose you, Zetta-chu". You need the Nvidia driver, you choose to install it. ZFS should be treated the same. You need ZFS, you choose ZFS.

            FWIW, I'm in the need category. Been a happy camper since the 0.6.2 days. Rocking 2.1-rc5 on.....dun, dun, dunnnn......Fedora 34 with Linux 5.12.

              btrfs also came from Oracle originally, so what then?

                Too bad ZFS isn't mainlined. Nobody sane will support out of tree file system.

                  It was made by Sun and is maintained by independent developers as OpenZFS. Oracle work on ZFS is limited to Solaris/Exadata and has nothing to do with the thing you can install on Linux.

                    Canonical would disagree. On the other hand, Canonical was never sane so, yes, you are right.
