Btrfs has different performance characteristics; it’s a logging-style file system that provides fault tolerance, repair, and easy management features.
“Btrfs is mature,” said George Shi, who helped rollbacks become a reality for openSUSE users. “It works with Snapper to implement snapshot and rollback, the killer function of Btrfs. You can pick any date you saved to rollback your full system.”
