"At its IRC meeting on Wednesday, the Fedora Engineering Steering
Committee (FESCo) resolved to use Btrfs as the standard file system in
Fedora 16 "Verne". Btrfs was called the "Next Generation File System for
Linux" by numerous major kernel developers two years ago and is still
labelled as experimental. For Fedora 16 there will be a "simple switch"
from Ext4 to the new file system; therefore Fedora's installation
program will not force Btrfs' RAID- and LVM-like capabilities onto users."
