The SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 release notes state that SuSE offers "commercial support" for btrfs, while Ubuntu and Fedora appear to be holding back until a working fsck utility is available. Does SuSE have some special tools/people to support btrfs that other distros don't?

(N.B. I'm aware that Oracle Linux also offers commercial support for btrfs, but they employ the main developer, so I can see how they have a special support capability).

Why would it differ? They both use the same kernel fs driver of brtfs –  warl0ck Oct 20 '12 at 9:20
    
@warl0ck: I know it's the same software. I'm asking about support. –  jl6 Oct 20 '12 at 11:13
    
Interesting detail here is that Novell Suse does not support writing to ext4 filesystems. They are actively pushing btrfs. –  jippie Oct 20 '12 at 16:46
