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.

The ReiserFS 4 fiasko was mostly due to the whole design behind it being a big, unimplementable mess. Sure, for toy cases it did work; but for corner cases it just couldn't.
