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.

Boo. It was there from first day. You haven't documented yourself about the most basic design ideas of Btrfs, yet you want to preach that it sucks.

About the articles: Yes, Ext* suck for big storage, that's not news. That's why SGI uses XFS in their boxes.
