More data is always better. I like qualifying the situations in that way. I
think we should make our decision based on the "center" rather than the
For I hope obvious reasons, I'd love to see this tested on a Lenovo X1
Carbon Gen 8 with the default SSD options.
I personally haven't had any experience with btrfs but if there are any
