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.

We are currently starting to see btrfs (also developed by Oracle btw ;-) gaining traction.

ZFS seems to be the betamax of file systems already.

Are you actually going to elaborate on that point or just leave it there in what some might view as a tolling argument?

Aside for better Linux support - I've not seen anything in BtrFS that's swayed my to switch from ZFS.

But I'm completely open to reason, so please explain away ;)
