    Good morning, everyone.
    a question about the xfs.
    with the improvements it has had in recent years and still today, is it adapted to work on modern ssd like nvme or is it better to go to file systems like f2fs, btrfs.
    thank you in advance for your answers

      What is the status of Btrfs RAID 5 these days? Has it been fixed?

        Has any progress been made toward adding native encryption support to Btrfs?

          F2FS is good for flash devices without controller, like SD Cards or PEN Drives.
          NVMe and regular SSD drives have dedicated hardware controller that make F2FS advantages redundant.

          Someone correct me if i'm wrong.

          EDIT:
          Bottom line, i'd use XFS.

            I'd use btrfs only if I needed its peculiar features (snapshots, checksumming) otherwise I'd use XFS.

              Minor nitpick: SD card and USB flash drives still have a storage controller(also Hard drives do), but it is weak, not as good as a Sata or NVME SSD.

                Always scary to read about bugs and filesystems in the same sentence. Especially when your main system uses both BTRFS and XFS...

                  Those who write they would use XFS. Why do you prefer it over EXT4?

                    I have XFS as the filesystem on my Talos II system. I'm using ext4 on this Ryzen 3900. Btrfs everywhere else.

                    Why XFS? I hadn't used it in a while, and I remember it used to be faster than EXT3 so I picked it just because.
