This was very interesting. I use btrfs on my laptop without raid, so I never encountered these pitfalls.

Good article but I hope it doesn’t scare people away from btrfs since it’s still a decent file system especially while using it on 1-2 disks.

So I guess its ZFS then? I was about to build my mini-pc with BTRFS but after reading this…

Obviously depends on the setup, but for raid like multi disk systems ZFS works great indeed.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
