[olug] Redhat deprecating BTRFS

I read a blog post around the time 7.4 came out and BTRFS was deprecated.
The writer said it was mainly a problem with keeping BTRFS kernel hackers
at RedHat so they could adequately work on and improve it and provide the
level of support you expect when you pay for service.

I really like the theory of BTRFS, ZFS, and some of the other non-RAID
expandable scalable file-systems, but I still have a (unwarranted?) fear of
XFS at scale in an enterprise.
