    Even after all this time ext4 bugs are still popping up, yet btrfs is being touted as stable.
    Sticking with ext4 for now, thanks.

    I don't understand why they use OverlayFS with ext4. It is designed for
    use with read only filesystems, I understand.

    Perhaps due to Docker which allows them to use images with the appearance that they can be written into but reset to 'default' once restarted.

    It's all the hype right now, never understood why outside some web apps.

    Ah. That's a somewhat niche utilization.

    Was reading that that a Google admin talking/pushing for Btrfs at NZ Linux.Conf.Au 2015 at:

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...LCA-2015-Btrfs

    I had a look on the slideshow :

    http://marc.merlins.org/linux/talks/...2015/Btrfs.pdf

    And nothing new.... Ohhh I manage. But there is a lot of other users out there that will not, -especially new ones. It give openSUSE13.2 a bad reputation. Maybe it was not the best idea to have btrfs as default in oS13.2. Maybe not even in next version. Not until maintenance/tools are more grown up. Not until it gives the end user a fairly smooth functioning fs.

    But that is what it is now.

    regards
    I'm shameless like others in the forum -was I to any help or made sense? If yes: click the on the star below to the left. Written whit a ;-) in my eye.
