    Probably also a difference in funding and manpower.

      To be fair, we don't know how ready bcachefs is. We'll only know that once widespread testing/usage starts.

      Btrfs was also considered "basic-feature-complete" when it was promoted from staging, and it's only then that various deficiencies started to appear.

        bcachefs will have journal,online fsck, snapshots..
        could they make it do online resizing( I mean grow+reduce )?

        It would be the best fs ever on linux if so..

            Unfortunately btrfs doesn't have all that manpower behind it.
            still, it's probably much more than bcachefs.

              I'm sure btrfs has more than 1 person working on it, even if not fulltime.

                I think there are at least a couple of full time person working on it (and doing great!), but it's still not a lot.

                  Isn't the point of btrees that you do not use a journal?

                    it was more ready that bcachefs is ready now

                      you mean if every other fs will regress in coming decades ?
