^^^^ This, * 1000. I'd go so far as to posit that if you're unaware of
the reasons you should or shouldn't be running btrfs (or any other
fs), you should just take the defaults that came with your installer
CD. Btrfs may have an impressive feature-set, but it's nowhere near
the "ZFS, but on my linuxes!" level of stability, utility or "almost
certainly won't fuck up your entire machine"-ness that I'm sure we'd
all like to see.
