I don't use it for data or other things(mail, database, etc), cause it is slow compared to ext4/xfs. I'm also wondering why the hell btrfs don't support ssd's for caching like zfs.

Before people start discussing *features*, note that OP uses the
mostly non-standard spelling "feature" when he means "future".
