Still unstable?

"While it's true that btrfs is still considered experimental and unstable, [...]"
As far as I know btrfs is stable since April 2013 and is used by some other distros. How about changing this part?

Although I don't disagree, links to prove your point would help. :) You do know anyone with a wiki account can update this article, right? --Maffblaster (talk) 16:53, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
The lead-in paragraph has already been updated. It's now more a group-perspective (experimental) and the unstability is switched to "growing in stability". --SwifT (talk) 09:11, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Minimum size for boot partititon

This discussion is done.

This article says "/boot requires 280 megs or more." Where does this requirement come from? Any source?

No idea. This comment is out of place and doesn't make much sense. I have removed it. --Tamiko (talk) 15:52, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Rolling back back from snapshots

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I think It would be important to include a way to roll back root subvolume to a state before catastrophe or what not bad situation. I know aproximately how to do that. But if there's someone who knows and has done suck roll back and is willing to write some lines about it, please make it so. ;) --Zucca (talk) 20:43, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Wouldn't you simply mount one of the snapshots as roots instead of the default subvolume? Could be tricky to find the name from grub unless you have a clear naming scheme. This unsigned commet was from Gatak . --Zucca (talk) 22:51, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
I _think_ that's basically it. User could select another subvolume just by choosing different ("rollback") entry from bootloader. -- Zucca (talk) 22:51, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
