XFS is very fast for large files; large being 1 GiB+. But it has some drawbacks, like it can't be resized once it's created, not even when unmounted. That's usually okay though, since storage drives are rarely divided into partitions. Some people say that /home should be XFS, since it store lots of larger files (I guess they argue that even several MiB are large too). I don't agree though, /home sometimes needs to be resized without losing data.
XFS is also very mature, and used in the enterprise sector a lot from what I hear. smile.gif

Actually it's BtrFS. Both t and r are lower case. tongue.gif
And since we're chatting about naming conventions, there's a lot of debate about how it's pronounced (yeah, some people really are that dull!). The developers are adamant that it should be pronounced "Better FS", but many instead call it "Butter FS" laugher.gif

lol People argue over that? I'd just call it by the letters, b t r f s, just like I don't say "extent" I just say ext. Oh well, then again I rarely talk about linux filesystems to other people since the majority would go "who what?".

The only thing I can see a need to be picky for, is Unix vs UNIX. The rest is just taking nitpicking too far when changing the case of the letter doesn't change what it is.

ok, so to get this right, anyone can use 'UNIX' where as only certed OSes can use 'Unix'?

The one I always struggle with is Next and their weird use of capitalisation

I think so. But what didn't help was how they used different variants of capitalisation in NextStep to define the version numbers.
