Linux Employees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have ported Sun's/Oracle's ZFS natively to Linux. Linux already had a ZFS port in userspace via FUSE, since license incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL prevent ZFS from becoming part of the Linux kernel. This project solves the licensing issue by distributing ZFS as a separate kernel module users will have to download and build for themselves.

By the time they get a solid working module for the Linux kernel of ZFS (the FreeBSD-hackers took years to get it right), I'm pretty sure btrfs will already have matured quiet nicely. But with Linux betting on several horses isn't unusual.
