This is hard to square with the fact that it's already being used in
production on millions of systems. It's also hard to square with the
data presented by Josef -- the only hard evidence I've seen on the
topic of filesystem reliability -- which shows btrfs is an order of
magnitude more reliable than xfs (although we don't know how it
compares to ext4). Surely if xfs is good enough for RHEL, and btrfs is
at least 10x more reliable than xfs, that suggests btrfs should
probably be good enough for Fedora?
Saying production on millions of systems is a bit misleading here,
when you are talking about millions of systems at a single company.
