FWIW: openSUSE has disabled very many btrfs features because they aren't
stable enough. [1]

FWIW: SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 will likely also be shipping with btrfs
as default later this year, unless they've changed their plans.

FWIW: openSUSE is actually using xfs for /home and btrfs only for
everything else.

Happy Sunday,
