But things may no longer be the same Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. Scott James Remnant of the Ubuntu Foundations team said in a blog post that plans are ON for doing work to have btrfs file system (btrfs is pronounced "Butter F S" or "B-tree F S") as an installation option and options of making it the default file system in Ubuntu 10.10 have not been ruled out yet.
