I am a fan of btrfs as well. OpenSuse have done a nice job of implementing rollbacks in their latest releases using snapper. But using snapper in other distros is hard as far as I can tell. With so many updates coming to our favourite linux distro we could benefit from something like this. Faced with a large number of updates recently, I used snapper to capture a snapshot of the system. When it failed to boot, I was able to use the rescue system to get to a prompt and log in. Using snapper I then rolled back to this working snapshot. It booted ok and seemed to work, but I lost all of my snapshots and snapper was not working. I had landed in root file system that was an orphan. It was isolated.

Anyone have thoughts on this - especially further down - file system layout?
