Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris It seems like we're really on the subject of filesystems and related technology the past few days. We had an interview with the man behind BeServed, an item on WinFS' current status, and now we - possibly - have news on ZFS coming to Linux. Possibly, because it's all speculation from here on out.

It is, the ZFS features are great for admins, datacenters and users who know what they are doing. For Joe user they are mostly useless...

Joe user still likes to have his pics intact when one of his cheap disks goes poof. Not to speak of backups and snapshots. Give him a good UI and he will find ZFS *very* useful.
