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.

A real reaseon is indeed the same as not using NTFS - it doesn't really work well with my platform of choice

Who cares about your platform of choice?

How about giving it a little thought before replying about your platform of choice to "give me a real reason why people should choose BtrFS over ZFS"?
