Btrfs finally edged out a small performance victory with Compile Bench's compile test.

With the initial create test in Compile Bench, EXT4 and XFS were the fastest.

Of the modern Linux file-systems, Samsung's F2FS continues to show much promise albeit is yet to be widely adopted and proven itself mature. XFS and EXT4 were also doing great while Btrfs saw just one win in these Linux 3.17 kernel tests today. While Btrfs is viewed as the next-generation Linux file-system, at least it's winning on the feature front with being most competitive to ZFS but its performance recently has been much more reserved.
