I would appreciate a few pointers on choosing an appropriate partitioning scheme on my new laptop (clevo pc50dd2). I have been a linux user for some 4 years now and I have done manual partition schemes and installer based partitioning schemes on previous centos and fedora installations. I have always used ext4 and lvm in the past.
I have 2 NVMe disks installed (Samsung 970-evo and WD SN550). This is the first laptop I’ve had where I’m purely NVMe.
I’ve seen the phronix reports about performance differences for f2fs c.f. other filesystems (XFS / EXT4 / Btrfs / F2FS / NILFS2 Performance On Linux 5.8 - Phoronix). I’ve also seen some articles talking about the unreliability of f2fs v2 ext4. I want to go with f2fs as I’m now purely NVMe, but I’m concerned about the supposed unreliability
I don’t have extreme use cases. I’m a developer and will mainly be running several vms. I could just continue using the tried and tested ext4, but I do (sometimes) like to try something new! From what I can make out, Btrfs would not be the best choice for NVMe.
