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.

Erm, can you clarify: You think both myself and the guys developing the port are missing the point because of the link you've supplied?

If that's what you're suggesting, then you've missed the point more than all 3 of us.
That link is the FUSE port which everyone has already acknowledged exists. However FUSE isn't native (as already mentioned in the article) and has it's own set of problems (performance being the biggest).
