Fedora desktop uses BTRFS by default for a number of really good

And what advantages does either it or LVM have for a home user with one
desktop and one laptop?
The advantage btrfs has is that the volumes share the same space. So
you can have / and /home be separate, but you don't have to decide on
how much space each one gets. And you can still do a re-install while
keeping the files in /home. Also, if the drive runs out of space, you
can expand the filesystem onto another drive. Snapshots can also be
nice in certain cases.
