This makes me almost want to try out Fedora, especially since Ubuntu takes that f**ing long to implement such basic features. I wonder if you can set the btrfs “compress” option here though.

(But, the first Anaconda screenshots looks like low usability. Why is it “Basic Storage Devices” and not just “Hard Disk” or mentioning the second with “… (Datacenter)”. And why make users guess with “If you’re not sure… this is probably it”?)
