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.

RE[6]: brtfs - less specific wording

If the platform one is working with does not provide ZFS support then it's not really much of a choice for them regardless of what OS platform it is. But, maybe I read the example in more generic terms than was intended.
