Link: Examining btrfs, Linux’s perpetually half-finished filesystem
Ars Technica's Examining btrfs, Linux’s perpetually half-finished filesystem (via) is not very positive, as you might expect from the title. I found it a useful current summary of the practical state of btrfs, which is by all accounts still not really ready for use even in its redundancy modes that are considered "ready for production". There's probably nothing new for people who are actively keeping track of btrfs, but now I have something to point to if people ask why we're not and won't be.
