Linux Mint 10 is the first version of Linux Mint with built-in support for the B-tree File System (btrfs). Btrfs is one of the newest file systems in the Linux kernel. It is a copy on write file system with the following features: snapshotting and writtable snapshots, object-level mirroring and stripping, file system compression, multi-device support, online and offline file system checking, etc.

Though it is now possible to install Mint and several other Linux distributions on a btrfs file system, you should be aware that it is still under heavy development and not yet ready for use on production systems.

If you, however, want to experience - first-hand, what btrfs has to offer, this article presents a step by step on how to install Linux Mint 10, aka Julia, on a btrfs file system.
