Hello,

I heard a lot of good things about BtrFS. Everybody agree on his qualities (next generation file system for Linux).
Meego uses it as standard file system
Ubuntu may use it for the next version
...

So is BtrFS finally stable enough to use it to install my OS ?

According to the Btrfs wiki, it is still "under heavy development". While there is a good chance that everything will work fine, there is also a chance that some things won't. In particular, I talked to somebody recently who tried to make a swapfile in a Btrfs filesystem and was unable to do so. Basically, if you keep your files backed up and just want to try it out, go for it. However, I wouldn't use it yet for a production system.
