Submission + - BTRFS - The Default File System in Ubuntu Meerkat (digitizor.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: The EXT Family of file systems (ext2, ext3, ext4) have been ruling almost all Linux distributions for a long time and Ubuntu has been no exception. 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.

  • I'm seeing a lot of shark jumping involving Firefox and Ubuntu due to unrequested, untested and unneeded changes dictated by non-democracy developers. I no longer like main forks and prefer outdated software to newer useless stuff. Posting from Ubuntu 9.04 under the "A web browser" clone.

    At this point, the question is: will our mainstream-ish community ditch Ubuntu or Firefox first?
