Glad to hear!
My biggest complain nowadays is this:
Not being able to mount partitions of my Raptor Talos Power 9 into my x86 systems annoys
me, but I guess it shouldn't bother many people. On the other side I had lots of
hardware issues on my Raptor machine and my btrfs hourly snapshots already saved my day
multiple times (latest one was while upgrading from Fedora 31 to 32).
Sadly that's the present situation, but I think that's being worked on.
As desktop ARM hopefully gains in popularity (between Raspberry Pi 4
being almost there, and Apple about to ship ARM-based Macs, the next
couple of years will be interesting) - as this happens I could imagine
the need for mounting partitions created on Intel on ARM machine and
vice versa will be more important.
From what Josef told me, once the kernel's btrfs driver supports this
existing filesystems would mount fine cross platform.
