Canonical’s Scott James Remnant (Ubuntu’s Development Manager) has published a blog post entitled Btrfs by default in Maverick? In that post Scott describes, “We are going to be doing the work to have btrfs as an installation option, and we have not ruled out making it the default.”
If this happens for Ubuntu 10.10 that would certainly be surprising and would likely make the Maverick Meerkat one of the first Linux distributions using this next-generation file-system by default — MeeGo’s already using Btrfs. If all the pieces don’t come together in time, we’ll likely just see Btrfs become an alternative file-system option in Ubuntu 10.10 and then see the move to it being the default in Ubuntu 11.04 or 11.10 in the next year.
