No, but I do run on my laptop/workstation the same technologies that
have been proven to be good for serious stuff.
That is the fundamental Linux advantage, or at least has always been,
and that's why I'm using Linux daily since when other people were
waiting for the release of Win95.
By that metric, Btrfs qualifies, as it's the default filesystem on
SUSE Linux Enterprise (and has been since 2014). SUSE has built
several products specifically on top of Btrfs, including their
Kubernetes product, which relies on Btrfs features to offer safety and
And Facebook runs it for nearly all their infrastructure, as noted by
Google uses it to power the Crostini Linux on Chrome OS environment system.
Synology uses it for their NAS products by default since 2016 with DSM 6.0.
I can keep going on, but I think this shows that Btrfs is a mature,
battle-tested filesystem used for *very* serious workloads.
