    Hi
    Those results are very questionable at best... I see no where near those times with GNOME and btrfs...

    Neither do I, on KDE. And phoronix .... well, it's phoronix.

    I'm sure you have better Benchmarks to say that these are not reliable

    Hi
    For me sure, the computers in front of me, The only benchmark I'm
    interested in... They all work as expected with btrfs and xfs...

    Slower by a second or two on an NVME SSD at its worst which is insignificant in real life usage.

    The random IO tests are completely pointless because they're never encountered by your 'average user' in a real life situation and as for those of us who do encounter them, we have other ways to go around them. Random IO is almost never an issue, anywhere - even on systems where I have thousands to tens of thousands of clients per second.

    Hello
    Mine is a different approach, I use ext4 even though it's not the first in Benchmarks, and I don't even try to justify my choice, also because I'm not competent enough to say this is better than that, but in my own way I had a 'negative experience with btrfs .... what I never had with any other previous file system, and I'm sure many were unhappy with btrfs

    Still using "ext4" here.

    I am using "btrfs" in a VM running Leap 15.1. And thus far, it is mostly fine. There was one time when the system seemed frozen for a couple of minutes while something "btrfs" related was going on. But, apart from that, it seems okay.

    I'm just not seeing a benefit to "btrfs". And until I do, I'll stick with "ext4".

    Nice example of the last couple of days: Due to the unnecessary install of apache-commons-parent a while ago, an updated version suddenly pulled in ~130 maven packages. I simply rolled back to a snapshot of just before the maven invasion, rebooted, ran 'zypper dup' again and no maven packages ......

    Nrickert: I use the feature a lot. User asks about certain software, I install it, help if I can, then later roll back, en rerun 'zypper dup' if needed. Has not failed on me once in the couple of years I use btrfs .
