Btrfs is great, don't get me wrong, it really is fast and snapshots and all that worked really great, but it is, sadly, a little bit too unstable to use it anywhere than on a test machine. Even if you have UPS and all kind of measurements to prevent such power failures and hard resets, your computer still might hang at some point and then you'll really are in big troubles.
Thanks a lot for sharing very valuable information. Considering that I want to return to Linux asap, it seems it's better not to gamble and install using ext4+lvm2+raid-1 and then, when btrfs becomes more stable, detach one disk from ext4 raid-1 array, format as btrfs, move the OS & data to it, dismantle array and add 2nd disk to the btrfs raid-1.
