It's time to challenge some long-held assumptions.
Today's Btrfs is not yesterday's hot mess, but a modern battle-tested filesystem, and we'll prove it.
Plus our thoughts on GitHub dropping the term "master", and the changes Linux should make NOW to compete with commercial desktops.

We're myth-busting this week as we take a perfectly functioning production server and switch it to Arch. Is this rolling distro too dangerous to run in production, or can the right approach unlock the perfect server? We try it so you don't have to.
