The difference between an operation like Facebook and the Fedora user base, it that Facebook will have a huge fleet of crap hardware, with the support teams to baby-sit the crap hardware, and attention to reducing the variety of crap hardware to limit the support matrix breadth, while Fedora has to deal with a huge support matrix breadth, without the support teams and the support team tooling to baby-sit hardware. (Besides Facebook designs the levels of crapiness they allow in their hardware, meaning they know exactly where they are pushing limits to lower hardware costs). And, it’s not always the crap hardware that hits bugs. Sometimes expensive gamer hardware will fail first because its manufacturer has pushed the limits to eke some performance points over the competition. Therefore, using btrfs in Fedora, is inherently more ambitious, than using it at Facebook.
