Sorry I'm a bit late on this gentle discussion, but I have one
question about this:
I use LVM to store virtual machines, one VM per LV, and it's very good
How is BTRFS's performance when used to store VMs (presumably they are
stored as files)?
Support for LVM won't be dropped anyway, this kind of usage can go on,
and you can just user a separate disk/partition for doing the same thing
you are doing now (presumably, with qemu).
I do the same thing on a second disk, and wouldn't mind re-installing
fedora en my primary on some-other-fs.
I DO worry about how safe the FS is.
I used BTRFS in ubuntu 10.10 on my GFs laptop, and SUDDENLY one day she
ran out of battery, and when she re-booted the whole partition was
empty. I have not trusted BTRFS since.
