            I don't think F2FS is supported by Fedora/CentOS/RHEL, nor is it in the plans to be, which really is a shame.

                    I take it you mean as a root FS. Debian's installer doesn't offer it as an option either (at least in Jessie) but it's easy enough to fudge it afterwards. I have successfully done this.
