Debian and its clones "ZFS will be supported in Debian Squeeze using the official installer. This means that Debian Squeeze will be one of the first GNU distributions to support ZFS. In fact, even though ZFS support didn't make it to Debian-Installer beta1 by the time it was released, it is now available in the netboot images (this happens because netboot images fetch newer installer components from the internet)."

But... wasn't it obvious that, being based on the FreeBSD kernel, Debian GNU/kFreeBSD would inherit support for ZFS? I'm not surprised at all by this "news" that ZFS is supported in their kFreeBSD-based distro. What I *am* surprised about is that it apparently wasn't already supported a while ago.
